Have you thought of the speckle mask reconstruction method for planetary imaging?  It would make your program the first outside of the professional arena with this type of techology. Using a web cam or video camera as the input this would be possible.

Wow! It looks very promising
Right now PixInsight has no implementation of any transformation to the Fourier space (read, FFT, DCT or any other transform), but it is in our "to-do" list. I think that this will be one of the first application using Fourier that will be implemented.
I cannot guarantee that it will be included in the Limited Edition of PixInsight, but surelly you'll find it in the Standard Edition (when avalaible). Thank you very much for poiting us this technique.

Hi William,

Thank you very much for this suggestion. The speckle masking technique looks pretty interesting.

We have also different approaches in mind for planetary and lunar image integration, also applicable to high-resolution images of planetary nebulae. These approaches are based on variable distortion subframing.

The standard edition of PixInsight will be an open, modular system thanks to an API (applications programmer interface). The API will allow users to define new preocesses and their associated user interfaces. Methods like speckle masking and many others will be easily implementable this way. So maybe we'll propose the authors of the original method to write their own PixInsight modules <g>.

Thank you again for your contribution.
