EP20 - Sunday, 20th September 2020 7:30pm BST - A look around Pixinsight by Gary Palmer

Recommended Posts

It is a great pleasure to welcome back to SGL Gary Palmer of http://www.solarsystemimaging.co.uk/ to give us his talk: A look around Pixinsight.

Gary is a highly regarded solar and deep sky imager and one of the leading solar imagers in the world with images widely published in books, magazines and online. He is the author of many articles and reviews in various astronomy magazines and tv programmes and works closely, alongside many manufacturers to develop and test upcoming astronomy equipment. Gary also offers many workshops across the UK for groups and 1-to-1 via http://www.astrocourses.co.uk/ which some of you may have attended before.

We've already had some talks that touch upon Pixinsight but Gary is going to start more from the beginning and run through ways to keep it simple and look at some of the issues people might have using the software. He will be looking at the weighted batch pre-processor as well as a run through using some CMOS data from the new 2400MC camera from ZWO and some Crescent Nebula data from our latest release from the IKO observatory project.

Meeting details below:

Be nice to see this event packed as image processing seems a popular pastime.

I’m certainly up for this one but there are glorious clear skies here in Shropshire tonight so will be ducking out around 8:30 to try and capture some data to process.

OK, I joined the meeting, but my head still hurts. Not sure PI is for me, looks too complicated.

I enjoyed the talk but look forward to the recording to watch again as there was much to take in and I'm very much a novice with Pixinsight. Thanks to Gary for a great presentation.

Yes, Gary certainly whizzed through some of the steps, great to have the video so I can work through at a more leisurely pace.

My head was still spinning when I went to bed. This wasn't so much a walk through as a gallop through. I suppose if you already knew your way around PI it made sense, but left me reeling.

We need a PI 101 for dummies, taking it slowly with repeats

Pixinsight analogy for me is akin to driving the car knobs, levers, buttons and things all over the place to get it working- but I'm confident they work for me so how they work I'm curious of but much of it I'll never understand  lift the car bonnet up have a look then put it straight back down ~ anyway stop the waffle - I took notes on Sunday and actually followed them on Monday worked really well...  a zoomed screen shot from Sunday night 10 X 360 S.Xpress 25C CCD / Tak, FSQDX 85
