What are the minimum recommended specifications to run StarTools?

The minimum specifications for a computer to run StarTools successfully depends mostly on the resolution the data you intend to process.

Low resolution data sets (for example from a 1MP CCD or Webcam) may be processed successfully on a Pentium 4 with 512Mb RAM.

High-resolution data sets, such as those from a DSLR typically require at least 4Gb of RAM.

For best results, 16GB and a modern 4-core CPU are recommended, in addition to running from a RAM disk (or alternatively a Solid State Drive).

Regardless of your machine's specification, consider binning your data if your data is oversampled.
