Zooming, panning and scaling

The StarTools main screen with a nebula and a striped pattern.
StarTools' astrophotography-optimised scaling algorithm can highlight latent pattern issues. It also was designed to show constant noise levels regardless of zoom level.

Even the way StarTools displays and scales images, has been created specifically for astrophotography.

StarTools implements a custom scaling algorithm in its user interface, which makes sure that perceived noise levels stay constant, no matter the zoom level.

StarTools implements a custom scaling algorithm in its user interface, which makes sure that perceived noise levels stay constant, no matter the zoom level. This way, nasty noise surprises when viewing the image at 100% are avoided.

At 100% zoom level a barely distinguishable horizontal pattern can indeed be seen.

Even more clever, StarTools scaling algorithm can highlight latent and faint patterns (often indicating stacking problems or acquisition errors) by intentionally causing an aliasing pattern at different zoom levels in the presence of such patterns.
