General / Re: Output folder in StarAlignment not saving

Like he said: when you use views, it outputs views i.e. images that have been opened in PI. If you want to have output files you need to load files.

Wish List / Re: Make select all work on macOS

Dear Juan,

Again thanks for your quick reply. I wasn't aware of the Use Native File Dialogs setting. I have disabled it and now CMD-A works. Thank you very much!!!


Cheers, Wouter

Hi Juan,

Thanks for the quick response. This does mean that every user who wants this needs to find out how to create such an icon on their platform which may not be easy for some people. I still think that adding a configuration setting to PixInsight would be the best way forward. However, I'll have a look into creating such an icon on my MacBook.


Thanks, Wouter

Bump. Can any of the developers of PixInsight please comment on my request? Many thanks in advance.

What would you do in this situation? spending around 1-2 hours on stacking is simply very frustrating.

How many lights are you stacking? And when you say stacking, do you mean running the image integration process only or do you mean the whole process from creating a master bias up to having an integrated image?

Great, thanks for the quick confirmation!

Another way to prevent Canon banding is to use dithering during imaging. Unfortunately that will not fix the issue with the image that you posted.

I just tried on my MacBook with a randomly selected JPG image and it got opened in PixInsight without any problems. What OS are you on and what version of PI do you use?

Thanks very much for this. Does this all also work with a trackpad on a MacBook?

You can eliminate the need to crop each image individually by doing the crop before the StarAlignment and then use that File or View as reference. This will crop the rest of the images while doing the star alignment.

General / Re: PixInsight Error Combining Two Sets of Data
« on: 2019 August 05 14:34:30 »
Is dithering involved in any (or both) of the images? That would make a difference of a factor 2 which should be taken into account.

PCC uses the star colours as seen from Earth so it shows things as we should see it from Earth. Whether or not you like it is up to you  :)

Astrophysically speaking the catalog *does* compensate for dust because the stars are affected by dust as well though mostly less than the galaxy since most of the dust lies behind the stars. This is why the galaxy appears as red. It is counter-intuitive though since “compensating for dust” implies “removal of the effect” while that is not the case in this case. Anyway, that’s all semantics of course  ;)

General / Re: The problem of green in narrowband SHO palette
« on: 2019 August 05 04:54:34 »
Correct me if I am wrong, but the SHO Hubble palette maps S to red, Ha to green and OIII to blue right? That's how the green ends up in the image. Since Ha usually is the strongest component of the three, these kind of images tend to have a green hue that can be removed in various ways with SCNR being one of them.
