Tutorials and Processing Examples / Inside PixInsight Book Update
« on: 2019 January 26 08:40:42 »
This is SO cool for several reasons!

#1, My book Inside PixInsight, is Springer Nature's #1!

#2, This poster was produced for England's AstroFest.

#3 It was produced because Springer managed to pull-off printing sufficient copies of the second edition for sale there.

#4 Can general US printing be far behind? IOW, hopefully, with a corrected index and other bugaboos now ironed out, I will hopefully have my bulk book order very soon.

#5 Apologies for the Springer delays!

https://www.ip4ap.com/Workshops/fall-2018-Seattle-workshop

Join Warren Keller and Ron Brecher for their highly acclaimed 3-day interactive workshop covering the basics of PixInsight by Pleiades Astrophoto. Targeted to beginners and early intermediates, the workshop covers the essential tools and techniques needed to produce beautiful images. The workshop will be held around the corner from Cloud Break Optics and is limited to an exclusive group of 30 attendees, allowing for a personal learning experience for all. The cost for three full days (18 hours) of PI training by two instructors is only $595.00 USD and includes morning and afternoon refreshments.

While the complete agenda to be covered is posted to the webpage, here are some highlights:

-   Navigating the user interface
-   Working with one-shot color and monochrome camera data
-   Identifying the best and worst sub-frames
-   Making master frames
-   Correcting uneven field illumination
-   Balancing color
-   Using masks to select and protect parts of an image
-   Taming noise and sharpening detail
-   Combining luminance (L) and chrominance (RGB) images
-   Enhancing contrast, brightness, and color saturation
-   Saving your work

In addition to group work, Ron and Warren will lead 'Process Your Own Data' sessions where beginners can practice their new skills. More advanced users can delve deeper into PixInsight’s processes such as DBE and Deconvolution with individual guidance from the instructors.  If you don’t have your own data, the instructors will provide high-quality practice data for you to work with!

We'll learn, and have fun while we do it! Don't hesitate to contact us with questions at http://www.ip4ap.com/contact. Please join us!

“… 5 stars. You guys are exceptional.”
Richard Payne

“I LOVED the hands-on approach.”
Prof. Samantha Blair

"Being able to have 1-on-1 coaching sessions was exceptionally helpful."
Thien Ngo

Dear friends,
Following a successful and fun PixInsight workshop in Buffalo, Warren Keller and Ron Brecher are teaming up to present a 3-day workshop in Mesa, Arizona, September 21-23, 2018. Please join us!

This Introductory-Level course will focus on the following objectives:

-Get you comfortable in the PixInsight working environment
-Demonstrate a simple workflow to produce a good-looking image from raw data
-Reveal intermediate techniques for further improving your images
-Build your skills by processing your own data, with individual coaching from the instructors

While the course is aimed at those nearer the beginning of their PixInsight journey, astrophotographers of all skill levels will pick up new tips and tricks for successful deep-sky astro-image processing. Day 1 focuses on learning the user interface and processing environment, and takes a simple data set through a complete processing workflow.

On Days 2 and 3, we'll dig deeper, mining more complex tools and techniques to enhance your workflow. The workshop includes three 'Process Your Own Data' sessions where the instructors will provide targeted coaching and advice based on individual interests and needs.
 
Thanks to our friend, Mr. Wes Grimes, the workshop will be hosted in his company's conference room at Collision Engineering Assoc. Inc. 2812 N. Norwalk Ste. 124 Mesa, AZ 85215. The cost for three full days (18 hours) of PI training by two instructors is only $595.00 USD and includes morning and afternoon refreshments.

Bug Reports / Program Won't Open
« on: 2018 January 07 13:24:18 »
Hey Juan, Sorry as I'm sure some things are difficult to replicate. On my Windows 10 PC, more and more, the latest version won't open. Click the icon, and nada. The PC must be rebooted to restore it. FWIW, the New Instance version always opens just fine, but the primary instance has my customized workspace. Let me know if I can provide anything further. Thanks!
