Comet alignment on Neowise beta-1
Just when I saw the news that there is a comet alignment introduced into APP I couldn't
resist and installed beta 1.
I worked with data from the 18th of July on Neowise, no flats, only a master dark
This image is the one I processed with APP and Pixinsight using Pixelmath to overlay the stars onto the comet image generated with APP.
In the next post is the image done with only Pixinsight ( I didn't overlay the stars )
Don't know why the first image didn't attach as well, so here goes the version
done with Pixinsight only.
Looking good I think? Not sure if you’re reporting an issue or just wanted to share the result. 😉
I was soo happy with the result I just wanted to share the outcome.
Now I have to go through some testing to improve on the star rejection
a bit more.
Hope to see the final version of APP with all the options for comet stacking.
Great job!! 👍
Ah ok! haha Thanks a lot for the nice comments! 🙂
