Much of StarTools revolves around signal evolution Tracking from start to finish. As such, familiarising yourself with how it works, is recommended to get the most out of your experience and your dataset.


Quick start

This quick, 7-step guide gets you processing your first image with StarTools in no time at all.


3rd party tutorials and resources

This is a small selection of StarTools tutorials and resources, created by StarTools users.


Practice datasets

If you are looking for datasets from amateur astrophotographers to practice with, there are a number for useful resources.

Processing is meant to be fun! If you really need help with a particular dataset, jump on the forums or contact us directly for some pointers - even if you're just using the trial.


Free Image stacking solutions

It is unnecessary to invest in further software

StarTools was created to complement the many freely available stacking and pre-processing solutions with unique, state-of-the art post-processing functionality.

Caution

Some of these solution provide basic post-processing function as well. Please note that only pre-processing and stacking should be performed in these applications in order for signal evolution Tracking to work and achieve optimal results; Tracking cannot track signal and noise propagation that happened in other applications. Do not stretch, color calibrate, perform gradient removal, or perform any other operations beyond initial calibration in these applications.
