I have been using APP for over 2 years now and love it. I use APP to stack and then Startools to do my post processing. Post processing has always been my weak point in astrophotography. Lately I am noticing that my results in APP with just a light pollution / background calibration are looking cleaner and bringing out more detail easier than using Startools.

I would like to start using only APP for my stacking and post processing, but there are a few tools that APP is missing that, if added, would be a great inclusion to this already great software.

Post processing features that would really help are Noise Reduction, HDR, Deconvolution, and Star reduction. I am sure other people would name a few other tools, but those are the important ones that I always use.

I know with covid, the development of APP probably slowed down some, but I was wondering if there are plans to expand the post processing abilities of APP?


I also just wanted to thank you for giving us this great software!

It's been said the next beta will contain star reduction.  So I check in here weekly impatiently looking for it 🙂

Thanks, yes many of the functionality you posted is on Mabula's list, the next version will have star reduction for instance.
