[Sticky] APP Quick Start Guide - Charles Bracken
This may have already been posted and I missed, it but I'll post this in case. Charles Bracken - the author of astronomy books including Deep Sky Imaging Primer - is "big fan of APP" and has posted a Quick Start Guide to APP. You can get it here: https://digitalstars.wordpress.com/2020/09/19/an-astropixelprocessor-quick-start-guide/
edit from Vincent; this is a 3rd party workflow, but from an experienced source. 😉
Nice! Thanks for sharing.
This is a great quick-start guide and should be prominently posted for anyone just starting with APP! Wish I'd had this when I was first started working with APP.
Cool! I'll make it a sticky in the workflow section of the forum.
Just purchased it after trialing it for some time , getting ok results but think its more my light pollution and gradients thats making it difficult ?
The quick start guide certainly helped along with a couple of videos i watched.
Picked this over Pixinsight for relative simplicity for a relative newby like me.
Good to hear, thanks for your purchase @cliff99, very much appreciated! You can always open a topic if there is something you'd like help with.
