Hey guys,

Just read through this post as I'm trying to get the most out of last nights Mars capture.
So far not really happy and it seems the above mentioned TGV Restauration Tool could help me a great deal.. is this available by now by any chance?

I've stacked this in Registax and done a few tweaks in Pixinsight such as HDRMultiscale Transformation and the TGV Denoise.
Any further thoughts/tips?

Cheers,
Mathias

There is a Youtube video out there explaining the use of the PI Restoration Filter process for planetary sharpening.  It works pretty well.  I do think Autostakkert does a much easier if not better job though.
Deconvolution seem sto be a big hekp with the Resoration Filter method, too.
Celestron CPC1100 - Canon 550D (T2i) and of course, Pixinsight!

Thanks mate for pointing this out to me.
I've had a play with it and can't seem to improve Mars much further... probably my source data isn't any good really.
I have however been able to improve my recent Saturn capture vastly with the Restoration filter, which is really awesome for this kind of processing.
Thanks again.
