Re: Colour Module

Hi Ivo, Ah that makes sense now. I had no idea that was the purpose of oversaturating the image... The main reason I've been using SCNR and Background Extraction lately on linear data is that, at least in my hands, Wipe seems to struggle with complex gradients in my multi session images. The "Basic"...

Colour Module

Hi, I've been an avid user of Startools for many a year, and it is indeed the mainstay of my processing workflow (tried others, but keep coming back to ST). One minor quibble I have is with the defaults in the colour module. When I choose to process RGB data from my colour cameras, I have to apply S...

Re: StarTools 1.8.511 public alpha/preview 3 now out

That's a great result from the data, Ivo. :thumbsup: Prior to this, I had one last attempt using the unedited stack, and sure enough got a better result. I didn't make a note of my settings, but used my usual workflow. The Contrast module then worked as expected, so the additional Background Extract...

Re: StarTools 1.8.511 public alpha/preview 3 now out

Hi, This proved to be very difficult lens to generate flats for, even with my purpose made light box. Vignetting was sadly unavoidable to some degree. With regards gain values, I used ISO 200 and 400, so that might explain that. I normally prefer to image at 400, but in this isolated instance due to...

Re: StarTools 1.8.511 public alpha/preview 3 now out

Hi Ivo, Yes the dataset has been Background Extracted, Green Noise subtracted and Photometrically Colour Balanced in Siril. Probably in that order, if memory serves. Under normal circumstances, I know that is a big no-no for Startools, but let me explain. (In my hands at least) Startool's Wipe modul...

I would greatly appreciate a link to the dataset. Thank you! :bow-yellow:
No problem - PMed

Thanks

Re: StarTools 1.8.511 public alpha/preview 3 now out

I'm experiencing unusual artifacts around some stars, using the Contrast module - v1.8.510alpha. Is this a bug? Hmmm... I have not seen this issue before. Is this 100% replicable? I can't see a download for 1.8.511. It should be in the download section. Maybe try refreshing the page? (Ctrl + R / CM...

Re: Compose Module Bicolor exposure

Hi Ivo, Sorry, I completely missed the fact that you'd replied to my earlier message! I'd never considered using just the green or blue channel alone, so thanks for that. :thumbsup: With additional data, it seems that I'm on top of my earlier low colour problem. I may also may have made subtle chang...

Compose Module Bicolor exposure

I was just wondering, what's the best value to set the exposure sliders to for Bicolor in this module when using mono Ha and Oiii filters? I know to set Luminance/Color value to "L + Synthetic L from RGB, R(GB)(GB) (BiColor)" For example I might have: 50000s with my Ha filter 50000s with my Oiii fil...
