Struggling with Registax constantly crashing  on Alignment.

Best I can manage so far:

Just about to set up myself as it looks like the Sun will hang around for a while today.

You can have our cloud if you like.

Do you want our rain as well? It started raining mid-lunch.
I had to do my "headless chicken" impression and rush over to close up.
I could give you a generous discount for cloud and rain as a package.
But only if you are interested. You'd have to take both at the same time.. 
You won't find it any cheaper elsewhere. Not even online!  :smile:

Forecast said wall to wall sunshine all day, didn't last long, my fault for setting up the solar rig didn't even get focused  😂

Supposed to be clear all night as well but judging by their success so far it's not looking likely 😟

Tried it but didn't like it. The image looks worse than Registax.

I have added a 4th attempt [upper] still using Registax and PhotoFiltre.

Still some decent detail visible there. What alignment techniques are you using for registax and autostakkert?

In Registax I'm Just hitting the Alignment button after Set Alignment Points.
Which I usually reduce to save a bit of time. I get regular crashes from the Alignment stage.
Not had enough experience with AS!3 to know exactly what I am [or it is] doing. :blush:

How big and what type are your file sizes?

Average 2-4 Gigabytes AVIs. 1-3000 frames on proms in SharpCap. RGB24 640x480. 
2x Barlow gives me 2.4m equivalent focal length. ZWO120MC USB3 into SSD gives me around 118-120 fps.
 

EDIT: Checked a few prom videos under Property> Details. It says I am only getting 30 frames per second.
But when I look at the SharpCap bottom line it says I'm getting 118-120fps. Who is right?

Sorry about the lack of response, I completely forgot I had asked.

I would be surprised if you are getting 100+ fps on proms, what is your exposure time?

Also I have not used registax for stacking for ages, is it just alignment "dots" or can you use a box as well?
