After giving PI a good run, I looked back at my beautiful results obtained with ease using StarTools and gave it up. I did some more looking for tutorials and found a couple example workflows with StarTools, which have been so successful I was stunned. I'm now creating gorgeous images from even mediocre data with very little effort using StarTools. What a brilliant program! I didn't realize what a jewel it was until I'd checked out the competition and gotten a little more comfortable with a good StarTools workflow.G. B., United States
Image Processing Software for Astrophotography
- Advanced astrophotographers will achieve markedly better results thanks to pervasive noise Tracking and data mining algorithms.
- Beginners will appreciate the ease of use and signal preservation safeguards.
- A novel engine does away with signal path limitations and poor user experience of traditional astrophotography software.
I have a slow Schmidt-Cassegrain with Alt-Az mount, 235mm F10 scope and use a 6.3 reducer with my CCD camera. I use no guiding and short exposure of less than 100 secs. I discovered StarTools and my photos are now amazing. Thank you StarTools for turning my average photos into amazing ones...R. Forest, Canada
The code and the theory behind it are truly innovative and much easier to use than the competition.E. O., United States
I'm impressed with StarTools, in the sense that it might possible have the best simplicity of use/results ratio of all. I managed to process my fist image in 20 minutes after my first contact with StarTools. I never got this result using PS or PI ... and I have been using them for a long, long time.P.A., Portugal
No more jumping through hoops. No nonsense, affordable astro software that just works.S. Sheriff, Spain
Since I've discovered Star Tools I feel that processing can be something faster, easier and much more intuitive compared with other software. It has really powerful tools not seen in other programs. 200% worth the price!A. Roig, Barcelona, Catalunya
Your truly innovative and powerful software continues to amaze and delight me!D. Zielke, Canada
Your software makes intuitive sense to me. It is easy and automatic enough to get good results almost immediately, but powerful enough to tweak even more from my data once some time is spent playing with it.P. Brand, Australia
Congratulations for your huge and wonderful masterpiece in image post processing!M. Cecconi, Fundación Galileo Galilei - INAF, Fundación Canaria, Spain
It seemed easy to navigate and concise, but still crammed with advanced functions. Even without reading the documentation in any detail I managed to produce something half decent from a single sub!T. Murray, United Kingdom
I tried your 'Startools' today and was blown away with its blinding speed and unique functionality.R. Higby, Australia
Such a wonderful piece of software.G. Stevens, Australia
StarTools offers a breath of fresh air in a field that at times can be complex and bewildering.BBC The Sky at Night Magazine, April 2013
Having acquired StarTools I'm now starting to feel confident with what I can do in this hobby. And that's a bloody good thing!!M. Vecchi, Australia
I love love love your StarTools! Please keep up the good work! Its an amazing piece of image processing software. I am so glad I found your StarTools.A. Svahins, United States
This ingenious software in my opinion out performs all previous packages I have used in the past.P. Scully, South Africa
Underneath its simple front interface is a powerhouse of tools.BBC The Sky at Night Magazine, April 2013
I am impressed with the ease of working with the package compared to MaxIm DL Pro 5, PI and PSCS2/3/4 with which I am very familiar.J. Giles, Australia
There are many clever things about StarTools, but the most impressive is the way it rejuvenates image processing by combining more primitive algorithms into new routines.BBC The Sky at Night Magazine, April 2013
