About This Club

A place to discuss the use of Pixinsight :)
  1. What's new in this club
  2. I was told by my mentor Ron Brecher that adding calibrated 120-180 and even 300s all together and then integrating is fine. You can also take the 2 masters and copy them. then integrate those 4 files (after star aligning).
  3. Hi All, I have currently added Ha,O,S 120s together but have some 240s Ha that I would also like to add. I normally do all my stacking in DSS first but what would be the best way and time to add the 240s Ha. Cheers,
  4. I use MultiscaleLinearTransform before the stretch then tweak with TGDVnoise after the stretch. Shawn has a great YouTube video showing him using both. Intriguing that he used the Linear Mask option in MLT rather than generate a separate mask from the image. I’ve tried this method several times on old and new data and it works well.
  5. Too many process icons perhaps? It has grown from an original DSLR workflow to now include NB processing. I don't process nearly as aggressively as I did with DSLR data, so many process are no longer used. But I keep them just in case...
  6. I came across this on FaceAche and wondered if anyone had tried it? http://www.clickdesignsoft.co.uk/autoscript/ For the sake a few quid I might well give it a go and compare...
  7. I always keep L and RGB as separate channels until I've completed most of my linear processing (background removal, initial noise reduction, etc). I've tried to do background removal and normalisation for RGB as separate channels and as a combined channel and found it easier to do them separately though it does take longer. I found Warren's process flow in his book to be almost ideal. Some of the process steps can be done in different orders but the overall flow works well.
  8. That's how I was approaching in, but then I wandered if the background extraction would work better when done to each channel individually or, whether it made no difference.
  9. Being an absolute novice at PI I just throw it all together first and then deal with each channel as needed.
  10. I've recently switched from a OSC to a mono camera. Previously I would do the calibration and integration and then process everything from then on as one image. With mono, at what point do you combine? E.g. should I be doing any changes to each separate channel first? Background extraction etc..?
  11. I use a Project Template for each of my sessions and have a default set to get the ball rolling at the start of a new session. Note it stops after Deconvolution - this is because currently I leave the PI domain and enter the world of PS3!!
  12. I have a few process icons I load automatically. A couple with some noise reduction settings (which I use the most) and one I use to darken the background of an image if needed.
  13. Interesting thread! I have never done anything to pixinsight but now I’m getting a new lapto with an i7 desktop processor and 32gb of ram I’m intending on tweaking things to get it as fast and user friendly as possible.....
  14. To kick things off, as a new user to Pixinsight I'm curious how people have Pixinsight setup on their computers? Do you have a load of toolbox icons setup for your particular workflow? Any specific things about how you configure Pixinsight to display on your screen? A screenshot would be great
