A big thanks to PhotoGav who posted some simple to follow instructions on how to use the stand-a-lone software earlier in his M27 thread.
I'll post again, but add that any file names must NOT include spaces. You can instead use a '_'.
If (as I do do), you embed your RGB files with a colour profile upon saving, that appears to be fine.
How to get the standalone Starnet version to work on the Mac
1. Download the latest version of Starnet for Mac OS from here:
2. Unzip the folder and place it on your Desktop
3. Save the image that you want to make starless as a 16 bit mono or RGB .tif file
*****DO NOT use spaces in file name, instead use _
4. Place the file in the Starnet folder on your desktop
5. Open Terminal and navigate to the Starnet folder, copy this command:
cd ~/Desktop/StarNet_MacOS - into Terminal and hitting Enter
6. Open in Text Editor either the file:
depending on whether you are working with a mono or RGB file and edit the filenames in there to be the filename of the file that you want to make starless
Save the txt file above in part 6, then....
7. Drag either 'run_mono_starnet.sh' or 'run_rgb_starnet.sh' onto the Terminal window and you should see the path of the the file appear
8. Make sure that Terminal is the uppermost window and hit enter - Program will run (this can take a while!)
9. When it's finished doing its magic, go to the Starnet folder, open up the _s version of your file and be amazed at the results!
I am (amazed), thanks again Gav for posting!
Some examples from playing around late this afternoon... the starless colour and mono images straight out of StarNet, no extra processing.
I still prefer my images with an embedded star field, but this should be great fun and be rather useful whilst processing...
The Ha data
Has anyone upgraded on Mac to "High Sierra" (OS 10.13) and had any issues with PHD2 or using Wine to run DSS, or any camera control software? I'm getting the notifications for the upgrade, but I'm worried some of my AP software (currently running on 10.12) won't work right before a big trip to a dark sky site in 2 weeks.
I just finished uploading a new beta version (0.7.0-beta1) of my Planetary Imager application.
One of the biggest news of this release is the availability for all major platforms (although OSX users might struggle a bit..). But of course, we also have a few new interesting features, like a network mode (client and server), a new histogram, and profiles support. Please look the official changelog for more information.
You can download the packages from the official download page, or grab the sources directly from the github project page
(edit: reuploaded Windows package, it had a small directory layout issue preventing startup)
