Thank you, Juan.
This is now working again.

There are no available updates at this moment.
I always keep up to date on updates, including the one from yesterday.

Bug Reports / Incompatible image geometry message
« on: 2019 December 17 06:12:17 »
When trying to calibrate my darks from last night, I get the error message about image geometry.
I have been through many example solutions on the forum to no avail.
Then I tried to calibrate a dark that I already did back in October, and it will not work either.
Is there a problem with the latest version that I recently upgraded to?
Or, is there some sort of new setup that I have neglected to do properly?


Is there a detailed tutorial on how to use CatalogStarGenerator?

Here are the first three files.


I tried to use that, and was following a tutorial.
The result that I got when the process ran was a new frame that was cropped to only contained the area where the two pictures overlapped.
Perhaps I did not understand the suggested steps in the example.
What I am looking for is a set of pictures in a line where each picture over lays the previous one.


I have a set of 8 jpg shots of an asteroid moving through a constellation.
I would like to line them up and make a mosaic.
But, I actually want to just position the shots over each other manually and them form them into a mosaic.
So far, all of the suggestions seem to direct me to Star Alignment or Dynamic Alignment.
I am not able to get either of these tools to work.
Is there a way to just manually drag the pics over each other and then make a mosaic of the views as they sit on the screen?


I have taken ten shots of the 2014 J025 passing through a constellation.
Each shot was a time exposure, and when the path of the asteroid about filled the view, I stopped the photo capture, move the camera to the right and then took another time exposure. Therefore, I have a path of shots across the constellation that I wanted to make a mosaic out of.

I would like to align the 10 shots to overlay/mirror my ten shots over the actual constellation.
This should show the path of the asteroid as it traveled through the constellation.
I have tried several times to use the Mosaic tool, but I cannot get anywhere with it.

Can anyone guide me to how to align the shots to make my mosaic?


It turns out that if I turned off the Hot Pixel Threshold and used the Auto Detect with the Hot Sigma left a 3.0, they all disappeared.

I have a situation where the CC is not eliminating all the hot pixels.
When I use the Real Time Preview window zoomed in on a particular area, when sliding the Sigma level to the left (smaller) this pixel will not go away.
In fact, when the Sigma slider goes all the way down to 0, it turns that one pixel into three pixels.

Any help is appreciated.


Yes, it is a color camera. 
Canon T3i (600D)
When I start PI, I first select pure raw first.

I am in Cave Creek.  Would you be open to talking?


Image Processing Challenges / Help with ImageCalibration results
« on: 2018 January 14 08:41:49 »
Hi, all.
I was wondering if I could get some guidance on my first step of processing my lights.
I have a before and after file in my dropbox.

It looks to my untrained eye that the before is nicer and cleaner than the after.
Here I used my light with my MasterSuperBias, MasterDark and MasterFlat.
Is the after supposed to look like this, or is there something wrong with my Masters?
