The IKI Observatory is a remotely hosted astronomy setup in Castilléjar, Spain at https://www.pixelskiesastro.com/. FLO / Ikarus Imaging have sent out a setup in partnership with Optolong Filters and Starlight Xpress. The projects purpose is to provide a community based remote setup that can be collaborated on on Star Gazers Lounge - the data is made publicly available free of charge and the targets are chosen on the SGL forums.
Getting to grips with new software can be daunting, but StarTools was designed to make this as painless as possible.
StarTools will not work correctly (or work poorly) with an incorrectly stacked dataset.
Current image processing routines and filters are still as 'dumb' as they were in the early 90s.
You can convert everything you see to a format you find convenient. Give it a try!
