I know you've mentioned in other topics that this one might be for the future. As a Mac user, planetary processing is extremely limited on OS X. There are only a small set of applications that can stack and process planetary images, and they don't appear to be maintained anymore. I think this is a subset of the market that's currently underserved and it might make sense to incorporate this into future versions with the deconvolution implementation.

Hi Andrew @Lead_weight,

Thank you for your thoughts on this. To be able to process planetay/lunar/solar images, I will need to create a module that robustly finds registration points in those kind of images. Currently these registration points are the stars in our images. So I think, in due time, I will make this possible in APP 😉

Kind regards,
