[Sticky] Comet Registration in Astro Pixel Processor 1.083-beta1 - video tutorial
If the version is still released this year, will the function be integrated here in which you can stack comet and stars together? In the video it was mentioned that this should be in the next version, but I wanted to ask for safety again if this is still up to date?
It is yes. Apologies for the delay, Mabula has also been moving etc. so it's been a very busy couple of months for him. I do expect it within weeks.
Hello Mabula & Vinvent,
I used the new comet registration feature a lot and it works fairly well for brighter comets. But I failed to register comet cores if they are dim and a brighter star is within the green square.
This is a pity, I think it would help if the dimensions of the "catching area" could be changed!
@helmut-dannbauerdrei-at Mabula told me that the comet registration will work differently in APP 1.083. The green square will resize automatically accordingly to the size of the comet. He is familiar with your use case of a bright star nearby and says that that should be fixed as well.
That sounds good, I crave for the new version!
