Removing satellite trails

Could someone tell me what settings I need to apply to remove satellite trails in the latest version of APP. I used to be able to do this but I cannot see what I should be changing in the integration. My latest integration had two satellite trails.

Got it. I didn't realise that you had to swap from automatic to average to introduce clipping.

It should be selecting the proper rejection algorithm automatically if you have a proper number of lights, like at least 15 I think.

Well I had 25 lights and it left the trails in. When I selected average instead and used a sigma it removed them.

Excellent, if the trails are indeed very prominent you may need to change the settings indeed. Automatically it will have pretty mild rejection.

Where is this option.. I am new to using the program and I have had some bad issues with StarLink Satellites messing up my images.

@spacemanbob see tab 6 and select a different option than automatic. When you hover your mouse over the drop down, APP will tell you which one to choose based on the number of lights that you have. Then the other options become available and you can select the values that are suitable to get rid of the satellite trails.
