Re: Computer Configuration

What about number of cores? Would we see a significant difference with a quad versus a dual core? Actually, I think you answered that question in an old 2012 thread on system specs: http://forum.startools.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=107&p=139&hilit=computer+specifications#p139 I've been looking at new l...

Re: Unable to Get the Funny Face to Work for Star Alignment

Good contender for "Best Thread Title" ever, though!

Re: Saturated Star Core Dark Anomalies

So I just updated to .289, and started off as before, crop 1 pixel all around, Wipe, and....no more dark anomalies!
Whatever was the cause, it's fixed now. :thumbsup:

Re: Saturated Star Core Dark Anomalies

I originally started this thread because the dark anomalies were showing up at the very beginning, with the first AutoDevelop, and it was throwing off Wipe. I got around it by Wipe for colour only, not brightness. While I was waiting for replies, I just forged ahead to see what I could learn. Yeah, ...

Re: Saturated Star Core Dark Anomalies

Oh, yeah, you guys are pulling more of the disk out! That looks fantastic! I think I deliberately held back in Develop because I was not able to get a good Wipe. But then I went up to 600% with the Sharp module. Yet you're not having the problem with the star core dark anomalies that I encountered.....

Re: Saturated Star Core Dark Anomalies

Ok, here it is: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/j841lzjq2zx5dnj/AAD0xk1Hf7hSCInv-eudAFcga?dl=0 Che, I followed some of your workflows in general, and had some questions... I noticed that whenever you use a module, you redo Develop again...is that a new global stretch, or stretch image as is? And why do y...

Re: Saturated Star Core Dark Anomalies

Well, I guess I'm pretty happy with this. Sharp, Color, Life, and Denoise modules probably made the biggest differences. I still need to fix those star cores, and there's probably a lot more that could be done, if only I knew how and had more time, but I can't really complain too much about this end...

Re: Saturated Star Core Dark Anomalies

I experimented with Manual Develop a little (but didn't keep anything) I notice that, without a ROI function, it tends to pull out a milky "haze" over the entire image, reducing the contrast, but on the other hand, seems to greatly reduce the grainy appearance, almost like it is reducing noise...ver...

Re: Grab and Move Crop & ROI Windows

Was going to suggest this also about the ROI rectangle. Any progress?

Re: Saturated Star Core Dark Anomalies

I'm getting better results using a mask that excludes a large part of M31 disk, M110, and also large blobs around the groups of stars with dark anomaly, and forget about gradient wipe, I only used the colour cast wipe. Then AutoDev with a ROI encompassing M31 core area. Now I'm not sure where to tak...
