2023-01-19: APP 2.0.0-beta13 has been released !
!!! Big performance increase due to optimizations in integration !!!
and upgraded development platform to GraalVM 22.3 based on openJDK19
We are very close now to releasing APP 2.0.0 stable with a complete printable manual...
I use a OSC camera with a multi-narrowband filter for my nebulosity. I then use no filter (or a very weak filter) for my stars. I start by loading all of my data as two sessions (narrowband and broadband). I usually extract HA, OIII and mono (For luminance) from my narrowband data using their respective algorithms in the “load” section, so that’s three passes through APP, and then I stack my “stars” subs separately with the Airy Disc algorithm.
What I’d love are some more advanced options in the integration tab, when you’re deciding which filters/sessions to integrate. Instead of just “all”, “separate” and “all and separate” options, it would be awesome if I could just check-box the sessions/filters that I want to integrate in that particular pass. I think it would be a much simpler way to do this, vs the current “uncheck all of the frames you don’t want to integrate” method. This gets especially cumbersome when you have 2, 3, 4 filters on one image, all with their different calibration frames, and trying to make sure you have the same reference frame for each integration.
Hi Jeff @jeffreyhorne,
Thank you very much for your thoughts on this.
I think your proposal is very good and usefull indeed 🙂 We can make APP smarter to make this possible. I have added this to our ToDo list.
It will be some time before we can implement it, we first need to create 2.0 stable and some other important new features will come in subsequent releases.
Thanks, Mabula! And thanks for making such great software!
