Siril 0.9.4

Recommended Posts

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 0.9.4.

 

1 - Presentation:
Siril is meant to be Iris for Linux (sirI-L). 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: http://free-astro.org/index.php/Siril:0.9.4

People on Ubuntu 16.04 or Linux Mint 18.XX can now download PPA repository in order to simply install last version of Siril:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lock042/siril
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install siril

We've also decided in this version to produce standalone application AppImages for using Siril in many GNU/Linux distributions. However, it seems that the package does not work very well on all systems yet.
Remember that Siril is a software for UNIX-like system, in consequence it does not work on Windows.

3 - New features:
Siril 0.9.4 is a stability and minor improvements release: it contains several bug fixes and at least 10 improvements over to the previous version, Siril v0.9.3.

 

  • Fixed issues with SER in generic processing function
  • Fixed inability to open FITS when filename had parenthesis
  • Fixed selecting new images did not update the number of selected images
  • Fixed histogram sliders lag on OS-X
  • Fixed message "Error in highest quality accepted for sequence processing....." during stack of %, even if quality data are computed
  • Fixed sequence export to SER with unselected images
  • Fixed global star alignment with angle close to 180deg
  • Fixed undo cosmetic correction
  • Fixed crash in peaker function
  • Fixed aborting global star registration summary
  • Fixed sequence list which was unreadable with dark GTK theme
  • Fixed the update of the list of images

 

  • Added support of internationalization: French, Dutch, Chinese, Italian, Arabic
  • Option for logarithm scale in histogram transformation
  • Add siril.desktop in archlinux
  • Added support for exporting sequence in avi format
  • Option to make a selection for global star registration in a smaller region
  • Read commands from a file
  • Option to follow star in registration
  • Added support for resizing exported sequence
  • Added support for reading and writing SER timestamps
  • Added support for RGB alignment
  • Added functionality to fix broken (0 framecount) SER files

We sincerely hope you will enjoy using Siril and you will produce nice shots.

The Siril development team

Looks interesting - thank you :)  I am about to change over from Windows to Linux for my astro imaging and processing.

Which version are you using ?

It's working for Ubuntu 16.04 and Linux Mint 18.XX. It looks like you have a 17.XX version

Hi, yes - Rafael. The next upgrade to Rosa still looks like version 17.3.

I'll hang on a bit.

Cheers.

Many thanks. I'll keep an eye out for the stable release. Shouldn't be long.

Thanks again.

      Hi everyone,
      I'm looking to get a reasonably portable astrophotography set-up, using a 60-100mm refractor, with a suitable goto mount.  I spotted the Explore Scientifice exos2-gt with pmc-eight goto system, which looks like quite an elegant solution, and wondered if anybody in the forum owns this mount, and what they think of it's performance & usability?

      Hi, I'm keen to buy a small good quality refractor primarily for astrophotography of galaxies and nebulae.   I'd like to use my Pentax K1 full frame DSLR with the telescope.
      Reviewing YouTube & Google the; Altair Astro 72 EDF deluxe & William Optics 71GT look like they might be good models to go for.  I'd welcome the community's views on both, and any other alternatives people recommend.

      Hey all,
      I made an acquisition and processing tutorial a while back (3 years ago? Yikes!) and it is fairly dated in terms of what I'm doing these days. I've been asked for a long time to make a new one showing what I'm doing these days. Specifically how I'm processing a single shot image for both the surface and prominences and how to process them together to show prominences and the surface at once. I've abandoned doing split images and composites and strictly work from one image using layers. Acquisition does not use gamma at all anymore. Nothing terribly fancy, but it's not exactly intuitive so hopefully this new video will illustrate most of the fundamentals to get you started. Instead of an hour, this time it's only 18 minutes. It's real time from start to finish. I'm sorry for the long "waiting periods" where I'm just waiting for the software to finish its routine, it lasts 1.5 minutes and 30 seconds tops typically at first. The first 4 minutes is literally just stacking & alignment in AS!3. I typically will go faster than this, but wanted to slow down enough to try to talk through what I'm doing as I do it. Hopefully you can see each action on the screen. I may have made a few mistakes or said a few incorrect things or terms, forgive me for that, this is not my day job. I really hope it helps folk get more into processing as its not difficult or intimidating when you see a simple process with only a few things that are used. The key is good data to begin with and a good exposure value. Today's data came from a 100mm F10 achromatic refractor and an ASI290MM camera with an HA filter. I used FireCapture to acquire the data with a defocused flat frame. No gamma is used. I target anywhere from 65% to 72% histogram fill. That's it! The processing is fast and simple. I have a few presets that I use, but they are all defaults in Photoshop. A lot of the numbers I use for parameters are based on image scale, so keep that in mind, experiment with your own values. The only preset I use that is not a default is my coloring scheme. I color with levels in Photoshop, and my values are Red: 1.6, Green 0.8, Blue 0.2 (these are mid-point values).

      Hi All,
      Having had to move to an apartment where I could not use my CPC 1100, I decided that I have to see what I could do with my NexStar SLT 102 (alt-az achromatic 102mm f6.47 refractor). Setting up on my narrow balcony was challenging and the altitude bearing was so loose that it almost moved from the weight of the Canon 700D. I could not see M31 in the estimated 3.5 magnitude sky so I did a two star alignment and used the live-view to focus on a bright star. I then took a 15 second exposure after slewing to M31 which allowed me to see that I had it in the field of view. After a few more 15 second exposures and playing with the motion controls I managed to get it centered. The resulting picture is from 39 subs of 30 seconds at ISO 1600, 9 flats. The images were stacked and stretched with Siril and then I played with the curves on Gimp, cropped and scaled. Not too unhappy.
