    Give it a try startools is free to try for as long as you want , you just can’t save final image until you pay for the licence , though you can screen shot ,

    Star Tools Has Hit!!! 😂

    I love startools John I’m a believer some peeps don’t get it but it simplifies processing , I didn’t get on with PS so much faffing about for me don’t be fooled by it , it is extremely powerful, great images ,by the way take a look at Ecuador’s tutorial http://astro.ecuadors.net/processing-a-noisy-dslr-image-stack-with-startools/ probably the best tutorial I have seen on startools , startools forum has good info and Ivo Jager is extremely helpful , and cost wise it’s not going to break the bank .
