Tutorial & Workflows Sticky
This forum will be filled with tutorials and workflows.
If you have a specific request for a workflow, please open a new topic for this.
hi a tutorial for integrating and processing single lrgb images together would be a great start,cheers
Thank you Ian for the request, I will make one using LRGB data of M45 😉
thanks look forward to that,when will the manual be completed after the loading section cheers
Hi Ian, I am working on the manual, soon there will be much more information 😉
thanks mabula tutorial and manual eagerly awaited 🙂
hi mabula any news on the manual or better still a lrgb tutorial ive had the demo a while but done nothing with it as i dont know how,thanks ian
I am working on a LHaRGB workflow using M51 data, i'll publish it soon. Same holds for the manual, an updated version will be uploaded soon. And more video tutorials as well.
Regarding your trial period, i'll be easy with extending it, since the documentation is not ready yet 😉 so that's only fair.
cheers newbies like me struggle with new software,i have the data in the images but no way of processing them,good luck with your software though thanks ian
any closer mabula im getting giddy?
Hi Ian, the LHaRGB tutorial is nearly finished...
It will be published tomorrow.
Here it is:
Let me know if this helps you in creating a LRGB 😉
thank you very much will try
hi mabula total newbie so excuse any daft questions,thanks for the video but what have you done before the video starts with normalisation cheers
No problem Ian 😉
I only adjusted the normalization mode, I set it to advanced. If you are combining data of just 1 telescope/objective and 1 camera, you can leave this at regular mode. The advanced mode becomes really usefull if you combine data of different sources, different imaging sessions and if your frames don't perfectly overlap over the whole field of view.
Is it clear from the video how you can register and combine your different color channels?
Thank you very much for that tutorial, Mabula - very well done and I learned quite a bit!
hi mabula does this screen shot look correct for stacking just the green channel or have i missed something cheers ian
or should i have calibrated the images before stacking ?
The image of M81 (?) looks pretty good, but if you haven't calibrated the frames yet, then yes, the calibration is the first step in data processing 😉
Maybe have a look at this video I just uploaded, I show how to load the calibration frames, create calirbation masters and how APP will apply them to your data:
Let me know if this helps 😉
hi mabula managed to get my 3 seperate stacks of RGB,but when i put them into the combine rgb tool i get the following red image ,any thoughts and once again thanks
link to rgb stacks
if it helps cheers
That last one is a great tutorial. I just have one question, where can a newbie like me find, WHY you make certain choices in the integration panel like median or average integration, which LNC level to pick etc....
thanks again for a great tutorial!
