Is there a manual from APP?

Dear @lucas5959, @adrie-suijkerbuijk,

A complete manual in PDF format is not yet available, but I am working on this with high priority.

Adrie, APP is really simple, just load all your frames, set settings in menus 2)-6) and click on Integrate in 6)  and APP will do the rest.

Have a look at this tutorial, it will show you how APP will automatically process multi-filter data including calibration:

Please let me know if you have additional questions,

Kind regards,

Mabula

Main developer of Astro Pixel Processor and owner of Aries Productions

Thank you, Mabula. Perhaps most beginners start using a reflex camera like Canon or Nikon. A sep-by-step guide could be very simple. Regards, Adrie

No, as that will be announced clearly on the site. I have no ETA myself, @mabula-admin should know more about that so I tagged him.

Any news on an User Manual recently so I don’t have dig through forums only to find outdated solutions?

Sorry, not involved into that myself; I'll pass it to Mabula directly so hopefully he has an idea. Thanks.

@vincent-mod

Those new videos on the APP Vimeo account are very useful! However, I was wondering if there is going to be a PDF user manual? Even if it was just a current collection of pop-up information boxes it would be a nice reference.

Any update on this topic ?

For sure I'm not an expert but "high priority" should be a different thing than something started in March and not yet finished in December (IMHO) 🙂

Best,

L.

Ciao,

@bbhtaylor : maybe something like this will be ok ?

[['DDP Saturation Threshold (SAT.TH): adjust DDP saturation background protection thresholdThis is a percentage of the data range. If your background (peak of the histogram) is at 15% of the histogram, you will protect the background by setting this value a bit higher than 15%, for instance at 20%. This slider is very usefull to apply saturation to nebula, galaxies and stars, while preventing the injection of unwanted chromatic noise into the background. Only applicable to colour data and if the saturation checkbox is enabled.Left image: the linear data stretched with auto DDP and saturation SAT at 20% and the threshold SAT.TH at 0%Right image: the linear data stretched with auto DDP and saturation SAT at 20% and the threshold SAT.TH at 25%, notice that the main object and the brights stars have the same color saturation, but that the background is more neutral by having prevented the injection of saturation in the low light areas of the image.']]

It's not well formatted but I don't have so much time ... if there is someone who can script in python (3.8) the output can be improved for sure 😉

Here is the script:

from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
import glob


for filename in glob.glob('*.class'):

html = open(filename, encoding="ISO-8859-1").read()
# print(filename)
soup = BeautifulSoup(html)
table_all = soup.find_all("table") f = open('output.txt', 'a')
for table in table_all:
output_rows = []
for table_row in table.findAll('tr'):
columns = table_row.findAll('td')
output_row = []
for column in columns:
output_row.append(column.text)
output_rows.append(output_row)
print(output_rows)
f.write(str(output_rows) +'\n')

 

Best,
Luciano

There are now new video tutorials in the tutorial section. The written version is still worked on by Mabula.

Hi Vincent, would it be possible to include a release date for each video? Something like:

Complete LRGB Tutorial of NGC292, The Small Magellanic Cloud

04-Dec-19 : This tutorial consists of 9 parts and is a complete tutorial from loading the raw filter data to a final LRGB color image ready for publication and includes all processed data available for download.

I guess that is possible yes, might be good to see how old a tutorial is. We're also going to clean up the how-to's and guides that are outdated.
