One thing that I've never understood is why the default weighting in 6) Integration is Equal. Since many new users often start using the defaults with APP they would automatically get a less than optimal result with this setting then if they used Quality.
Also in version 1.076 A new choice - automatic integration seems to be great. The documentation says "With the automatic integration method, APP will automatically set either median or average integration, set suitable integration weights (either equal or quality weights) and it will enable an outlier rejection filter with suitable kappa low and high values, all depending on the number of frames in the integration/stack. With light frames, it will even enable Local Normalization rejection if preferred. " I don't understand how Equal Weight can ever be better than Quality Weight.
Without knowing the selection criteria for Quality vs Equal I would hesitate to use this excellent new automatic integration choice.
