General / Re: Best way to use star mask
« on: 2017 November 02 17:37:59 »
Erik,

Books could be written on masking in PI.  If it helps, I have an 80 page workbook that has a large section on masks.  Also, if you haven't looked at it yet, Warran Keller's Inside PixInsight from Springer Press is a great resource.  Also, take a look at Harry's Astrobarn which is a great source for people new to PI.  If you are interested in my workbook, just drop me a line at jkmorse57@gmail.com and I will send it along.

Best,

Jim

General / Re: DBE/ABE advice needed
« on: 2017 November 02 17:28:08 »
Hey and welcome,

DBE/ABE is not really changing your signal to noise ratio, its simply messing with how STF shows your image.  You can go in and reset STF by ctrl clicking on the little radiation symbol on STF and adjusting the sliders to get back to a better display.  If you are looking for more help, I have an 80 page workbook on most of the tools that I offer for free.  If you are interested, just drop me a note at jkmorse57@gmail.com

Best,

Jim

General / Re: PixInsight 1.8.5 - Was the SHO-AIP script removed?
« on: 2017 October 21 19:13:57 »
I went to each of those scripts and edited the file permissions and they now work again. Don't know why they came in with the necessary read permissions but its a simple fix

Chris,

For those of us who are not programmers, could you elaborate on exactly what to change re the file permissions.

Thanks,

Jim

Juan & Vicent,

I am just starting to scratch the surface on the new 1.8.5 tools, but this one is magical in its results.  I am going back to redo old processing projects and am amazed at the improvement generated by large-scale pixel rejection when I compare the old results with the new.  It just about eliminates the distracting blotchiness in my backgrounds and otherwise makes for a far cleaner image, with no discernable damage to good signal.  And the high and low rejection maps are things of beauty in showing the problem areas that have been fixed.

Just had to say thanks,

Jim

Image Processing Challenges / Can Local Normalization Fix This?
« on: 2017 September 28 14:52:22 »
Hey Folks,

See the images below.  As you can see from the blue integration, I had something really funky going on during image acquisition.  The problem has been solved but I hate to waste 18 hours of data.  You can see from my finished image that I did what I could with the standard PI tools, which was way better than I ever hoped I would be able to do.  But does Local Normalization offer me another means of attack.  Obviously, each of the subs is not as bad as the blue integration and in some files, mostly from my green filter, the problem doesn't exist so I have a workable reference frame.  My question is, how should I go about trying?

Thanks,

Jim

General / How do I . . . . ?
« on: 2017 September 25 09:34:58 »
Hey folks,

I have a small but irritating issue.  I am using a Dell UP3216Q workstation for my image processing but this has been an issue no matter what monitor I have used.  On the screen, when I open am image, the first size is too small to see details so I immediately zoom.  But the zoom takes the image from too small to just too big so it doesn't quite fit.  Its ok horizontally but is always just a bit too big vertically so I have to do a bit of scrolling to see the whole image.

Is there a way to adjust the settings so that I can make the zoom a hair smaller?

Thanks,

Jim

Warhen,

I may have missed it, but will these be made available as updates to Inside PixInsight?

Thanks,

Geez, take a little time away to retire and have my hip replaced and all of a sudden, 1.8.5 is on the horizon  :D :D :D

Juan and Co., thank you so much for the continued dedication.  Gonna have lots to add to my workbook when all of these fun new tools start appearing in the update list.

Best,

Once again you prove you are a gentleman and a scholar.  That was it exactly.  For me 1.0 was too small but 1.25 did the job beautifully.

Thanks!

No, I have been able to resize those to the size I want.  Its just in PI that I am having the issue.

General / Resizing PI Window and Icons
« on: 2017 March 29 16:13:04 »
Hey folks,

Should know this but have a new monitor (Dell UP3216Q) with resolution of 3840 x 2160, however, my PI window and icons simply scaled up to take up the same space as my old system.  What do I need to do to reduce the size of the icons, titlebars, etc.

Thanks,

Jim
