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.
With a suitable dataset, workflows in StarTools are simple, replicable and short.
Current image processing routines and filters are still as 'dumb' as they were in the early 90s.
In your final image, noise is worse in some areas, less in others.
Tracking always knows how to accurately estimate the noise component in your signal, no matter how heavily modified.
You can convert everything you see to a format you find convenient. Give it a try!
