Stackistry - a lucky imaging/image stacking tool

Recommended Posts

I present an early version of my lucky imaging/image stacking tool. Usage description in the README file. Source code and a 64-bit Windows binary can be downloaded from:

https://github.com/GreatAttractor/stackistry/releases

(to launch, use stackistry.bat).

In case of questions and problems, post here or send me an e-mail (address in the README). If Stackistry produces a poor-quality stack, it would be very helpful for me to be able to download the problematic raw video.

One things have settled down here (new job) I'll be interested in seeing how this works on my new ODroid C2 (quad core arm) for solar work.

New version: 0.1.1
Download: https://github.com/GreatAttractor/stackistry/releases

New features:

  • Support for Y8/Y800 AVI files

Enhancements:

  • User-configurable brightness threshold for automatic placement of reference points


Until now the local brightness threshold to place the reference points was hard-coded to 33% (relative to the brightest pixels in the image). It was fine for planets and the Sun, but not necessarily for the Moon. Example of various threshold settings (from the left: 10%, 33%, 70%):

(Of course you can always just use manual placement, if automatic doesn't do the job).

I just had a quick try.

I'll be able to write a full review in a few days.. need to get the hang of it first :)

In the meantime, thanks, and keep up the good work!

Have fun!

Keep it mind that at the moment automatic processing is best tuned for Hα surface imagery (i.e. what I do most often) and high-resolution solar white light. For prominences with an overexposed (white) disk and planets, manual placement of ref. points is recommended.
