Comet registration does not let me find the comet

hi,

I have a set of 40mm DSLR data which seems more difficult. APP does not allow me to search the comet. I see the first screen shortly, than APP tries to find Neowise by itself for all frames. Maybe a "force manually finding the comet" would be good. I attach one of the errors encountered processing the data and a single frame.

Ok, so the actual error is that it skips the manual selection? Didn’t see it do that yet (at this point it actually is a requirement), are you sure you didn’t click in a wrong place (just to be sure)?

Interesting, would be great if you can share this data with us to check.

Go to https://upload.astropixelprocessor.com and use upload1 (or upload2 till 5) as username and password will then be the same as the username.

Create a directory named “elgol-COMETselectionissue” and upload in there. Thank you!

hi vincent,

the login does not work after 3 attempts. maybe try this here:

Oh that is weird, you did use upload1 as username and upload1 as password?

I’ll give your link a go this afternoon, thanks.

@vincent-mod

so, I guess the comet algorythm has problems with the foreground. I cropped it and everything worked fine. Maybe insert something that stops this irritation.

Neowise08 normal APP noregist RGB session 1 St combine02 2

this is done with the data in 3 different stacks: forground, stars and comet merged in photoshop

Thanks for sharing that, I'm starting to work on it today, have a bit of a data backlog. 😉

Ok had a look at the data, loaded everything in, went to the register tab and selected "comet" registration and it did ask me to point to the comet. Worked fine with the foreground. So unfortunately I can't reproduced your issue at the moment.

I can get a bit of that blue tail out of it, nice. But your combination above makes it much better even. 🙂
