Processing comet with new APP 2.0.0-beta 13 release
Comet registration and integration

I tried processing comet C/2022 E3 using APP 2.0.0-beta 13 and have two questions/comments:
- Using this new beta release, APP asked me to “click comet nucleus” for every single frame (during the “comet/one-star” registration). In the prior release this did not happen. If memory serves me correctly, of the 67 frames, I only had to confirm comet nucleus 5 or 6 times in the last version. Is this change intentional, a bug, or something that I have done incorrectly?
- Are there any new “local normalization settings” recommended for processing comets using this new release?
- Are there any specific tools or settings to minimize (or even eliminate) star trails from from the comet registered integration?
Thanks in advance for any input and guidance.

1-2; is this the same dataset you tested for the previous versions that did work? In principle nothing changed in that feature versus beta 13 I believe.
3. Not yet really, you can play around with rejection settings, but it's not ideal. Mabula is going to work on making this nicer.
