General / Enable Printing
« on: 2019 March 05 13:19:22 »
How do you enable printing in PI?  I understand there is a work around to display the print option under the File menu.

Does anyone know what has happened to Juan and Vicente?  It has been quite a while since I have seen a posting by either of them.

Image Processing Challenges / TheSkyX FITS Pedestal in Header
« on: 2017 December 10 06:45:58 »
Warren Keller, I decided to create a new thread for this topic as my reply was getting lost in the thread you have under Bug Reports regarding the -100 pedestal. Please refer to that thread for continuity.  I am using the manual calibration method and have the -100 value in the fits header for the pedestal.  For your solution, do I need to do the same to the darks?  And what about the biases themselves?  Do I need to do anything to them before I create a master bias?  Also, after rereading Juan's comments, he says to insert 100 as the bias value whereas you said 0.  Can either be used?

General / Fatal Error Message When Opening PI
« on: 2017 October 12 07:50:03 »
I just installed the new version of PI on a new computer (Win 10).  When I try to open PI it starts to open but after about 10 sec. I get the attached error message.  Can anyone direct me on what to do about this?  It installed fine on another Win 10 computer.  Thanks.

Bug Reports / PI Desktop Icon Issue
« on: 2017 August 13 07:30:02 »
Since I have upgraded to the latest version, I have lost my nice PI icon.  It now looks like a generic shortcut icon.  Is this true for everyone or do I need to reinstall to get the original icon design back?  The same appearance occurs if I pin it to the task bar.  I am using Win 10.  I can't locate the .exe file to send it as a shortcut to the desktop to see if that changes things.

General / LinearFit Incompatible Geometry Error
« on: 2017 March 17 14:07:08 »
When I try to apply an RGB to a Lum using LinearFit, I get an incompatible geormetry message.  These are two images that were successfully used to create an LRGB using LRGBCombination.  What can cause this message?

New Scripts and Modules / MureDenoise Problem
« on: 2017 February 17 11:46:56 »
I have been using MureDenoise quite successfully until today.  I denoised several masters and all of a sudden when I click on the Denoise button, the number of cycles changes back to the default of 8.  I can select a different number but it reverts back to 8.  Can anyone duplicate this problem?  I have restarted PI and also the computer with no effect.

General / Reinstalling PI
« on: 2017 February 09 09:49:44 »
I have uninstalled, downloaded, and reinstalled PI onto a computer that I have not used for a while.  When I copied my User Identifier and Activation Code from my original email, I get an Invalid User Identifier error message.  How do I proceed from here?  Do I need a new identifier and code?  Any help would be appreciated.

General / Logon Error
« on: 2017 February 09 08:37:03 »
I have a computer on which I had installed PI quite some time ago and have since been using a different computer.  I tried to open PI today and I get "No such user identifier".  I have no such problems on the other computer.  Can anyone tell me how to proceed?

General / Using DBE on Individual Colors
« on: 2017 January 07 07:09:38 »
Is there a down side to using DBE on color masters before creating the RGB?  Someone on another forum said this should not be done.

General / Master Dark Correlation Warning
« on: 2016 August 18 12:52:47 »
When running ImageCalibration, I occasionally get the message "Warning: No correlation between the master dark and target frames (channel 0)".  What is this telling me and is there something I can do to prevent it?  On my current image set I got this message for 31 out of 125 images.

General / Using CosmeticCorrection

Are there any tutorials explaining the various settings in CosmeticCorrection?  Or how to set things for a starting point?

General / Dark Blooms & Star Cores
« on: 2016 August 07 17:31:00 »
When I open a raw FITS image created by Maxim and if it has blooms or saturated star cores, they are black.  See the attached screen shot.  If I open these images in other processing software, they appear normal.  If I open them in Maxim and resave as a floating point and reopen in PI, they then appear normal.

What do I need to do when downloading images from the camera using Maxim to get these to display correctly?

If I don't worry about their initial appearance and go ahead and calibrate and create masters, will they be correct?

General / Incompatible Geometry
« on: 2016 July 04 15:15:14 »
I have encountered an "Incompatible geometry" error message when using LinearFit.  I am trying to apply it to a synthetic lum and the extracted lum from an RGB image.  Both are in a nonlinear state.  What kinds of things could trigger this error?  Any suggestions will be appreciated.  I have tried redoing a dynamic crop.  I also tried to realign the two images but that failed, I assume, due to them being nonlinear and lots of processing applied.  Or is LinearFit not compatible with nonlinear images?
