    Stacking for Linux

    Hello. I really think you should normalize your images during stacking. If not, you will stack images that are not consistent and sigma clipping will give bad results.
  3. Siril is now almost dedicated to short exposure deep sky shoots. It is possible to preprocess, aign and stack directly the SER file. You can have 60000frames with no problem. Moreover, you have many way to do it: - automatic alignment tool with detected stars (could fail using a barlow and with only faint stars) -> align with rotation and translation - one star registration ->align with translation - planetary alignment (could be use ONLY if the two methods failed) ->align with translation
  4. Hello. In siril, median does not apply registration. If you want to align and stack, please use other algorithm. With 4 images the best is mean with percentile clipping rejection.
  5. You can take a look to Siril that is opensource. Then it is now working on Linux, FreeBSD, OS X and Windows. You can process DeepSky and planetary images (and / or videos). Cheers,

    Lagoon - first step into processing

    Yes you got monochrome CFA pictures. Preprocessing must be done with CFA files. Not with interpolated TIFF files.

    Lagoon - first step into processing

    Hello. You shoud use Siril color calibration tool on your image. I've quickly done that with your jpg (in fact one never should apply this tool on non-linear image as jpg, but it was for the test). Here the result:

    They're a lot of different way. As Siril is opensource you can help us to debug or write new features : https://free-astro.org/bugs/view_all_bug_page.php It is also possible to test and report all bugs encountered. Then, it is also possible to click on the donate button ;). Anyway, as Siril is free and open, every possible ways are very helpful. Cheers, Cyril

    Feel free for doing that :). Publicity is a sort of help. Cheers

    Sure, but my opinion is that it would be more useful to help us improving Siril than redoing something else from scratch. Of course, this is just my opinion. However, Gimp is very important for the last step in astrophotography process ans should be use for that.

    Why do you want use gimp for stacking image ? Siril is dedicated to this task, and IMHO it does the job.
  12. Siril looks to be a great piece of software. My appreciation to all those involved in its development!

    Siril can deal with your data with no problem. No need to buy any software ;). With Siril you also have an autostretch mode. Then, of course you can process your images with the histogram transformation tool. Take a look to the documentation, you could learn some interesting informations.
  14. Hello, we are glad and proud to announce that a new version of Siril has just been released and is now available to all users: Siril 0.9.7. 1 - Presentation: Siril is (was ?) meant to be Iris for Linux (sirI-L), but is also now working on Windows (tested on 7, 8 and 10). It is an astronomical image processing tool, able to convert, pre-process images, help aligning them automatically or manually, stack them and enhance final images. 2 - How to install the release: Each new version is produced with several packages for most OS we handled. We try to build maximum of packages and cheer you to check if a package does exist for your OS at this page: https://free-astro.o...tle=Siril:0.9.7 A packages is available for all these systems: GNU/Linux (deb, rpm, appImage) OS X Windows 3 - New features: Siril 0.9.7 is a stability release: it contains several bug fixes and some improvements over to the previous version, Siril v0.9.6. The most important feature we implement in this new version is the new automatic registration algorithm. This algorithm uses a robust RANSAC routine that optimize the first search. We sincerely hope you will enjoy using Siril and you will produce nice shots. The Siril development team
  15. Hi everyone, I'm pleased to share a good news with you. Indeed, thanks to Partha Bagchi (https://www.partha.com/) we are now able to provide you an .app file for OS X users. This is a good improvement because no Homebrew or Xcode are needed anymore. Also !! the app is 10% faster for stacking. You can download the app here. Enjoy !!
