General / Re: Combining Images of Different Focal Length
« on: 2010 April 20 23:19:27 »
Hi Juan,

Thanks for the additional info.  By what you have said I may have to go with DA instead of SA.  The shots we plan on combining initially will probably be some widefield piggyback shots just to test the waters and get our bearings.  I'll try SA to start and if it doesn't work out I'll give DA a try.  We're hoping to get together in the next couple of months which will give me some time to play with both SA and DA a bit.

Yes, your memory serves you well.  You registered and worked on a widefield shot of Orion for me.  I'm still on APML but there's not alot of activity on it any more, especially not in film!  Ahh, the good old days!!

Hi Vincent,
You can call me a dinosaur but I'm still using "film" for imaging.  There is a guy in my club with an unmodified Canon Rebel that wants to try combining his Ha-poor images with my film images.  I primarily use Kodak Elite Chrome 200 slide film and the newer Kodak Ultra Max 400 print film which both have good Ha response.  Unfortunately we don't have any lenses or scopes that are the same focal length so hence my question.  As I have only scratched the surface of the capabilities of PI, I was not aware your program was capable of combining images of different focal length.  I will check out the StarAlignment tutorials to see how this is done.

Thanks!!

Hello,
As a newbie I'm still in the basic stages of learning but have what may be a more advanced question.  Is it possible to combine images of different focal lengths using PI?  If so, is there a tutorial somewhere about this?  If not, how would I go about doing this?  What program WOULD allow two different focal length images to be combined into one image?

Thanks!

General / New Trial Version
« on: 2007 December 14 19:55:11 »
Hi,

I just downloaded the new core application, filled out the form for activation, received the e-mail with user i.d. and activation code, copied and pasted them into the activation window and got an "invalid user i.d." error.  Did I do something wrong or is there a problem with activation?

General / PixInsight Standard and Image Registration
« on: 2006 February 04 11:39:07 »
Hi Juan,

I was wondering if you have any new info as to the release of the commercial version of PI?  Also, I wanted to know if the new version will have an image registration process similar to Registar that will allow you to not only stack multiple images, but also register them for mosaics?
 
I would also be very interested in any new tutorials that you may be getting ready to release for Wavelets and SGBNR.  

Thanks

General / PixInsight FITS files for AIP 4 Windows
« on: 2005 June 29 10:32:26 »
Juan,
Okay, I've got it now.  I extracted the 3 channels in PI LE and saved them seperately, then tried to open in AIP and they opened just fine.  I'll still read to see if it's possible to open an RBG FITS image, but at least I can get the channels to load.  Thanks for all your help.

General / PixInsight FITS files for AIP 4 Windows
« on: 2005 June 29 09:45:37 »
Hi Juan,
    Thanks for the link.  I ran a 25% downsampled image through the FITS Verifier and it came up with 0 errors so maybe you are right in that AIP won't take RBG images.  I'll have to read more in the book to see what's up with this.  Thank you for helping me find where the problem is.  I mainly purchased this product for the book more than the program.  I really like PI LE and am looking forward to more program updates and for the commercial version to come out.

Thanks
Gary

General / PixInsight FITS files for AIP 4 Windows
« on: 2005 June 29 09:09:29 »
Hi Juan,
    I tried what you said and it still won't load.  The error message I receive is... FITS Header Error: naxis=3 and naxis3 not = 1

When I pull up the FITS header in PI LE, under SIMPLE it says...
Value - T      Comments - File does not conform to FITS standard

Does this help any?

General / PixInsight FITS files for AIP 4 Windows
« on: 2005 June 26 23:39:33 »
I recently purchased AIP 4 Windows and was trying to load an image saved in PixInsight.  Although I saved it as a FITS file in PI LE, AIP 4 Windows cannot open it.  Is there something I need to do or is there a specific form of FITS file I need to save it in so I can open it in AIP 4 Windows?  I know absolutely nothing about FITS files and am lost.

Thanks
Gary

I really like this tool!  WOW!  I've been trying it on some of my past images and what a difference.  Thanks for adding this.  I'm really looking forward to the full featured version.
