General / Re: New Preview
« on: 2018 March 06 08:01:56 »
I've had the same problem several times. I'd always have to Ctrl-Right click and change the mode.  Then I "noticed" the toolbar (red box) and found that it's the easiest way to be able to mouse a preview. Alt/Option-N (blue box) pops the dialog as you mention.

FYI for those following this thread, there is variant discussed on this thread that runs SubframeSelector as a process:

Pointing this our only for others interested in this great tool.

Thanks again Mike.

Sorry to hear that you're leaving the hobby. SFS is very helpful, thanks for the contribution.

Would it be OK to post the code to GitHub and continue to develop it?

Astropy has a fitsheader tool to read fits file and find a specific FITSKeyword. Is there a similar tool for XISF?

My specific need is to rummage through the "Approved" files from SubframeSelector and find the highest weighted file.

General / SubFrameSelector, deselected files and remeasuring
« on: 2018 February 11 12:31:21 »
With SubFrameSelector (SFS), once you've deselected or eliminated some of the files/subs. When is it necessary to remeasure the remaining subset?

Any best practices? Only after a certain magnitude of sigma error is removed? Certain number of subs? Not necessary as SFS automatically recalculates!

Bump. Any time frame?

Wish List / Re: Profile tool

Just for completeness sake, there is a tool to do dynamic profiling!


May auto install under Windows, for OS X, I had to manually install following the instructions at the top of the page.

I have no connection to Code Obsession except as a user.

Observatory is "Adobe Lightroom" for astrophotos. The latest version supports XISF images!

General / Re: Dual Monitors

Anyone else notice a quirk with dual monitors where the PixInsight splash screen is clipped and only the top left quarter is visible?

Happens with my Mac Thunderbolt monitor and a Lenovo HDMI monitor too.

General / Subframe Selector

Any particular reason the Subframe Selector Script should not run against ALL the calibrated images at once?

I've seen most tutorials and other examples run the script against each filter set. It would seem that more data will give you tighter estimates for your good data and make the outliers even more obvious.

General / Star Alignment once for LRGB?
« on: 2016 July 04 13:05:16 »
Seems most workflow descriptions have Star Alignment done as an independent step for each filter before image integration and then again with the filter masters before final image combination.

Is there a reason not to Star Align all the files at once so every filter set is done together as one step before moving through the rest of the workflow? Seems like it saves the second round of Star Align once the filter masters are created.

      file-path                     hst_05962_01_wfpc2_f814w_wf_drz.fits
      file-format                    FITS

When I open this file, I get three image files with the root name and "CTX" "WHT" and "SCI" appended.

Any idea what the initials stand for? Google searching didn't help.

Wish List / Re: Subframe Selector script Min/Max Variables
« on: 2016 April 08 11:20:22 »

Might it be on the horizon for future enhancements?

Wish List / Subframe Selector script Min/Max Variables
« on: 2016 April 08 04:58:46 »
Not enough of a programmer to add this to the script myself.

Would be nice for my weighting function if there were variables available that defined Min/Max values for Eccentricity, FWHM, Noise etc.

General / Re: Width of File Open Dialog Boxes
« on: 2016 February 23 10:53:07 »

I did find a simpler OS X workaround. There is a small icon in the upper left corner of the file open dialog box that controls the display of the left sidebar. I start with mine open. On click closes the sidebar and gives a wider name field. A second click widens the window further and reopens the side bar. This gives enough room for my needs.

Have to do this every time though. Still defaults to small dialog box.
