Sometimes you have problems that you can't find solutions to and you push it to the future how to solve it. In my data there are photos I took already in 2013 that I accidentally had the camera's auto rotation turned on. As a result, as the mount moved during the night, the orientation of some of the photos changed.
Since then I have tried to change the rotation so that all of the raw photos will be back to a horizontal orientation again which many of the astro software require. Changing the orientation is easy in most software, but to save them in Canon's .cr2 format again I never found a solution to until now.
Here's how I solved it:
I have only done this on Canon's .cr2 files. Let me know if you can use this for other cameras, Nikon, Sony etc. You have at least to change the file extension inside the batch file.
Had a quick search but not found much info, I've just 'transitioned' from DSLR to a CMOS (AA 183C pro)
Used to capture with APT or Backyard Nikon, save as RAW, DSS to stack and use autosave.tif to work on in Photoshop. Whats the general consensus on CMOS ?
So far trying APT or Sharpcap, saving as FITS, stacking in DSS still and using autosave.tif into Photoshop. I keep seeing fits liberator mentioned ?
Opinions gratefully received.
Not sure I'm in the right place or not but I was hoping someone could help...
I have an Altair Astro GPCamV2 and the box tells you to get the software from http://cameras.altairastro.com/ and that it will only work with Windows!
I was wondering if anyone else has gotten this type of cam working on a Linux os before and what the steps were for doing so. (Other software that will work, terminal commands for the drivers etc.)
thank you in advance ?
I'm currently running Linux on my laptop and just wanted to know the best stacking software is for an amateur to use.
I tried installing registax with wine but it didn't work.
I've tried out PIPP and didn't really get on with it.
So far the only one I've gotten my head around is Siril by free astro.
Would like to know what other software there is that works well on linux that is good for amateurs who have just started playing around with this.
I acquired an Ultrastar C for EAA last fall. (I only got a few chances to use it over the winter, but we got some desperately needed rain instead. So that's ok.)
The Ultrastar C has been astounding on the few evenings where the fates have yielded to properly working equipment and clear skies.
I'm looking for pointers to tools and techniques for post-processing the color FITs image stacks captured from Starlight Live. I'm on a Mac so that limits some of the software options available.
The docs for Starlight Live say there is a command line option ('-load-image-rggb') to reload a color FITs file into the program. Does this work from a Mac command line?
Are there any other Mac programs that can read the Bayer RGGB color FITs files exported from Starlight Live for manipulation. Or something that can demosaic and export the files for manipulation in Photoshop? Maybe Nebulosity4.
