New video tutorials?

Hey admins,...how about some new video tutorials for us newbies. Perhaps on some DSO's or other objects that are in the current skies
in north and south skies this time of year. Maybe at least a couple of new targets every month?? The 6 videos on youtube are a bit dated. Thanks!!!

Re: Output resolution

Hi, You can change the encoded preferred DPI of an image easily using numerous programs (The GIMP, Photoshop, etc.). StarTools exports - where it can - DPI-less or default/minimal encodings. Changing DPI obviously won't magically change the resolution or create more detail though - it will just inf...
