General / Re: question on installing pi on a new system
« on: 2019 December 05 10:54:40 »
Hi,

You should be able to load PixInsight (Windoze, Linux, Mac versions) on multiple PCs that you use or own.  You will use the same activation codes for these installations. I don't think that this can be done with the "Trial License".  You could test the power of your PC on http://www.pixinsight.com/benchmark

Hi,

To load the Processor Explorer select "View" ---> "Explorer Windows" ---> "Processor Explorer" 

There is documentation for some of the Processes but I sometimes just do a Google search on the process.

General / Re: PI Log or Dump File? / PI Running In Debug Mode?
« on: 2019 November 30 22:22:09 »
Hi,

When Windoze has a blue screen there is normally an error code like 0x000012345, displayed for a second or two before the pc reboots. If you can get that code, then a Google search will indicate what the problem is.

Hope this helps

Hi,

Drop me a mail and I will send you a small text document for basic processing of images.  This will go a long way to producing a decent image.

Hi,

You do not have to use the script "SubFrameSelector" as it has been incorporated into the standard processes  "SubFrameSelector"  The new SFS has lots of new reports and graphs etc.

Hi,

I was using LN and then read that you should know what you are doing with LN, so I stopped using it. ;)  I only use DI when combining data from multiple nights.
I don't think there are any hard and fast rules, although I think Drizzle works best when images are under sampled.

Hi Steve,

Great image!  Have you done a Deconvolution on the Lum and/or Ha, cos that will bring out faint detail.

Hi,

I have seen a similar problem.  Do a "Google" search for "api-ms-win-core-libraryloader-l1-2-0.dll" and find the link to the Microsoft website that will allow you to download and install/register the file in your Windows system. Be aware that there are other sites that advertise the availability or the file, but I would only go to the Microsoft site.

« on: 2019 November 20 11:04:40 »
mmmh, did the new version download correctly.  I think there is a checksum for the download.  Please check that that the download is 100% and then try the install.  If the install fails then there should be an entry in a log file, which is normally found under /var/log

Hi,

Perhaps uninstall your existing PixInsight and then install the latest version.

General / Re: Pixinsight running slow
« on: 2019 November 20 08:14:31 »
Hi,

I assume you are running Windoze .... Try this, create the following folders C:/Users/User_Name/AppData/Local/Temp1 and C:/Users/User_Name/AppData/Local/Temp2  and C:/Users/User_Name/AppData/Local/Temp1.  Now in PixInsight go to Edit ---> Global Preferences ---> Directories and Network ---> Swap storage directories ---> Add the three folders you created and the Apply or F6.

That should speed things up a bit.

Hi,

Do a "Google" search on "Synthetic Flats PixInsight" or go http://trappedphotons.com/blog/?p=756  The trappedphotons tutorial is excellent to create the missing Flat

General / Re: filtering with MLT vs. starmask
« on: 2019 November 19 05:17:15 »
Hi,

There is no right way to create a mask, so you can use MLT or AdvStarMask or MaskGen or RangeSelection etc.  Sometime when trying to create the correct mask, I will try a few different methods and different setting to create the "right" mask for the process I want to run.  So remember, to experiment, experiment experiment ....
