Calibration Settings for Plane/Satellite Trails?
The good news is: airplane and satellite trails won't apprear on darks 🙂
And for the lights go like this: When using the outlier rejection filter (in combination with "average" when having approx. at least 20 frames), I always use the default, which is kappa 3 and iterations 1. I ALWAYS check the "create outlier rejection map" to see what pixels were rejected. If the final stack image still contains trails I increase the level of outlier rejection, either increasing iterations or lowering kappa to 2.5. But, I also review all singe frames before stacking and manually delete bad ones, e.g. when there is a heavy trail right through the object.
Kind regards, Stephan
I am having trouble with this as well. The geosynchronous satellites in Orion, since they are are on EVERY frame and right in the same location, they are not getting rejected. So far I have tried increasing iterations to 2 and lowering kappa to 2.5, but they are still showing up in the integration.
What is the most aggressive I can get with these settings before damaging the rest of the image? I am using LN MAD winsor clipping, average integration, weights by quality, and have about 350 frames.
