Tool Documentation
« on: 2019 October 04 00:19:06 »
I installed the new version of pixinsight and now I seemed to have lost Tool Documentation in the Process Explorer fly out.

Is there something I need to do to get them back. Not all the tools had documentation but now none of them do.

Thanks Bill

no one responded to this and I am having the same issue.

Does no one know why tool documentation does not exist?

Please?

It looks like several are missing.

After installing a new version I think you need to run update in Pixinsight to get the documentation.

Hi,

To load the Processor Explorer select "View" ---> "Explorer Windows" ---> "Processor Explorer" 

There is documentation for some of the Processes but I sometimes just do a Google search on the process.

I submitted a 'Wish Request' that missing doc's be included some time ago.

Sad. Somewhere there is documentation on ImageIntegration, with graphs too. I was watching the Keller video, it was a workshop video on the interface. Warren was talking about how after 30 subs you do not got a substantial improvement in add'l integrations for each add'l sub and there was a cool graph from the documentation. Where would I find that?

"This is an outrage!"

Not sure I agree. 

It depends on many factors.  How dark the site is (LP), if you are dithering, camera background noise / read noise ...etc.  If you are after IFN you need many long subs approaching tens of hours.

well the exception is if you have very short subs otherwise I do not have a dog in that fight I just want the documentation.

True - There are about 30 doc's missing from the Core Processes.

well if this is the case, I think I am updated to the most current version.  Not sure why I have no access. I know there is documentation on imageintegration but not showing for me.

try Resources > Updates > Check For Updates... and see if there is a refdoc update pending. i think this always gets loaded separately from the main application after a major version upgrade.

Did you once take a look at the PixInsight website? Obviously not. That seems to be demanded too much. This whole discussion is ridiculous.

Documentation of ImageIntegration:

you could say the same thing about everything here. No one should post questions or comments instead we need to search around.

Please let the admin know to delete this entire message board since everyone can just look at the PI website.
