Gallery / Wide Ha test image: from M42 to the Horsehead
« Last post by RickS on Today at 09:38 »
Testing my new Borg 55FL f/3.6 scope with ASI1600mm Pro camera unguided on a Star Adventurer mount.  922 x 30 second subs and 90 x 2 second.  Chroma 3nm Ha filter.  I'm pleased with how deep it went.  Still some tweaking to do on camera spacing and I should put more effort into polar alignment :)

that's a good idea, although the trial period is very long there is a lot to learn and it would be good to hit the ground running.

Ace, I'll give it a go.  I think I'll do some tutorials first though, so I know what to expect. Thanks everyone for your help.

the trial is fully functional so what it does is what it will do when you buy it  :)

Ok thanks - I think the only thing I can do is try it and see what happens.  Does the trial period use the full power of the software or is it restricted until you get a full licence?

Hi Chris -
Another possibility is to highlight the process icons you wish to transfer and then right-click on the workspace, select
     Process Icons/Save Process Icons.... Save the icons with the name z.xpsm.
Open the second project, right-click on the workspace, select Process Icons/Load Process Icons.... Double click on the z.xpsm file and, voila, there are the process icons with all the same settings.

Hope this helps.

Hi Chris!
I open e second instance of PI. 
!!PixInsight -n
(in the commandline of PI (1))
In the first instance of PI i select all the processes i want to copy,
and save them  in a fast accessible directory under name "z".
Than i open file Explorer and drag and drop (!!!)  z.xpsm
into the second instance of PI.
And all processes of instance 1 of PI are now available also in instance 2 of PI.

Maybe there is a faster approach - but for me, an old old guy, its fast enough..

there's a great deal of parallelism involved to speed things up, so lots of stuff is loaded into memory at any one time.

I'm not sure which PixelMath tutorials you have seen. The ones I've enjoyed are found at the link below.

http://www.werbeagentur.org/oldwexi/PixInsight/PixInsight.html

They are by Gerald Wechselberger who is longtime master in this area.

Ok, I'll check that out, thanks. Does PixInsight not do it image by image, and so only have the image being processed and the dark frame in memory at any one time?
