Hi Nikolay,
Thanks a lot for the script, it works as expected, and really easy and straightforward to use!
Very simple - but it saves hours of manual alignment! Great job! :)

Hi Nikolay. My latest try to register images of Holmes was unsuccessfull. My set contains set of short exposures with core and set of long exposures with faint large coma. This second set also contains saturated core and I cannot register these images. Solution for me is to take one short exposure after the set of long exposures. Another possible sollution is to allow user enter velocities dx and dy obtained from other set of images. I think, that images taken in one or two hour have no problem with different speed.
Can you please update your module to allow manual entry for these two parameters? Thank you very much.

Hi Nikolay.

I know this feature, but where is the center of my saturated core? This is extremely stretched image, where I want to find some feature to register. The central area was totaly saturated. I don't know, where to click. :-)

How I can help you to calculate the center of saturated core ?
Tomáš, if you know core center , you can enter the x,y manually.

You don't need to know center of the saturated area. From previous set of images I know velocities in x and y axes (for example 3.5684px/hour and -1.12345px/hour). If I know these values, it is possible to realign images. I did this proces in Iris, but it is uncomfortable to switch tool for this small task.

This is product of my work with Comet Alignment module. It is difficult for me to process this image like HDR, but this is question to other forum thread. Alignment was done well. Thank you for your tool.

v.1.0.1.0001 + comet velocity pixels/hour. BugFix: interpolation method was ignored - fixed.

Hi Nikolay.

This is unbelievable. You are faster than Speedy Gonzales  (fastest mouse in Mexico)  :o . Many thanks.

Hello Nicolay

I did a try on this module, and shure I did something wrong.
I marked the comet in the first and last Image, but after processing, in the images in between the comet was not aligned correcty.

I then selected arbitrary images by double click on the module and the comet was not aligned there also.

(attached image of first, arbitrary in the middle and last image)

Regards

Please share with me first, last and one of intermediate image(which not aligned).
