I am sure there are loads of these polls but there seems so many available now I was wondering what, and why, people are using them.
Poll is set to close end of August so it doesn't go on running forever.
Thanks for participating
So on Tuesday night I spent the evening imaging the moon with my Celestron 9.25 SCT and DSLR as shown below and am happy with the images I collated (I only took images as I did intend to take capture video but I got carried away and time was getting on).
I have approx 350 jpeg (and the equivalent in raw) images and have used the Microsoft image composite editor to stitch the frames together without editing them first etc but I wonder if I'm going the images an injustice?
I'm not ready to pay for editing software as I know there is a lot of very good free downloads out there and I'm asking for recommendations. Should I be processing the frames before/after stitching and what software would you recommend? Please offer any advice you have.
I will post the resulting image once I'm happy with the outcome 😁
Thanks in advance,
I am a proud member of a team working on a multi-platform live stacking solution : ALS (Astro Live Stacker => https://als-app.org)
It runs fine on PC (GNU/Linux and Windows 7 to 10), OSX and RaspBerry.
Current stable version is very basic : Polling a folder to detect new images (any FITS or DSLR RAW) then align + stack (Mean or Sum) + autostrech + levels + RGB balance.
ALS also has a built-in webserver so your pals at the astroclub can see the results, provided everyone is on the same network.
We are working hard on new features like Dark subtraction + Hot pixel removal and are providing nightly builds for you guys to try it out. Check out https://als-app.org/nightlies/
Handling image capture directly inside ALS using INDI protocol is on our roadmap too. check out our Github repo to know more about it
If you could give it a try and help us make ALS a fun & easy way to see and share all those wonders above our heads, that would be much appreciated !
Clear skies to all !

Anybody know of a piece of software that could detect the change the occurred in an image? I'm doing a project to see if I can find an asteroid or comet without any prior knowledge of where said asteroid/comet is.
I'm not really sure where to look for something like this, so any help would be appreciated.
Also, I would like something that could run on Mac. But I'll run it on bootcamp if there is no other options.
Hi all, as a complete beginner, who is gradually getting some kit together, the question of which Polar Alignment App I should get for my Android phone is exercising my mind. Looking at the android play store there seems to be a myriad to choose from, which do members recommend & why?
