Processing mono CCD subs?
« on: February 03, 2012, 02:25:22 AM »
So, what is everyone's favorite software for processing LRGB and narrowband (Ha,
Hb, Oiii and Sii) subs?

I'm going to wade into this next week with the delivery of my 1st mono CCD, an ATIK 428Ex.

To this point I have used a couple of DSLR's, a QHY8 and a QHY9C, as well as two astro-video cameras BUT never anything requiring filters to get a color image.

My software expertise (if I dare claim this) is ImagesPlus, Registax, Deep Sky Stacker and Photoshop.

I've heard a number of good things about PixInsight and do have the LE release but have never tried it?

Hi,

Go for PI, this is really THE software for processing! I used PS and even use PI now for processing my normal photos!!
You will need some time to get into it but it's worth the efforts, really!!!

I've been using AstroArt for years.
Very under-rated for what it does. It controls all my cameras for spectroscopy.
Just works!
recommended.

Hi,

I always used Maxim, but after some problems i switched to Astroart..
Just a question, does it need a lot of RAM to work in a satisfying maner?
