Hi Juan,

Thanks for the explanation but I am still a little confused.  I have attached screenshots of some SubframeSelector results for both the current version and the earlier version and it shows some strange results.  The greatest area of confusion is with the third sub-image (L-003_a_r.xisf).  With the earlier version I would have probably kept that sub but with the current version I would have tagged it as an outlier and discarded it.

Is this relevant or am I overthinking it?

Many thanks, Terry.

Hi Terry,

The third frame is certainly an outlier in the graph produced by the SFS process. Are you using the same star detection parameters in both the script and the process?

Just downloaded the new version and I get a message from my anti virus software(Avast) that it is an infected file. I have reported it to them as a possible false positive. Anyone else get this issue?

Please see this post:

This is a false positive, there are no viruses in our installation packages.

Hi Juan,

Thanks for the post.  There was a difference in the Star Detection Parameters.  The older version used the Moffat 4 for the PSF fit and the latest version used Gaussian.  I fixed that problem but the results are much the same (see attachments).

Thanks for your help, Terry.

New command-line arguments. These new arguments facilitate installation on machines with nonstandard screen resolutions (mainly laptops and virtual machines) where automatic UI scaling factors cannot be calculated reliably. Excerpted from the command line help text:

         --ui-scaling=<n>|auto

               Set the core UI scaling factor to <n> in the range [1,4], or allow the
               core application to calculate a suitable scaling factor automatically.
               The specified value or setting will persist in application preferences.

         --ui-font-resolution=<n>

               Set the core font resolution to <n> in the range [10,1000] dpi. The
               specified value will persist in application preferences. The default
               font resolution is 100 dpi.

I assume you are running on Windows. To execute an application from the command line, press Windows+R to open a 'Run' box. Then type the following and click OK:

C:\Program Files\PixInsight\bin\PixInsight.exe --ui-scaling=2

In this example, I am assuming that 2.0 is the correct scaling factor for your laptop monitor. If this is too big, you can try with 1.5 for example.

Remember that you only have to do this once. The specified scaling factor will be stored in application preferences, and will be used until you change it manually, or until you reset application settings.
