This is a basic workflow showing how real-world, imperfect data from a DSLR can be processed in StarTools. The workflow details data prep, bias / gradient / light pollution removal, stretching, deconvolution, color calibration and noise reduction. Please see video description on YouTube for the actual datasets and other resources.
This video shows how processing a complex Hubble Space Telescope SHO dataset is virtually just as easy as processing a simple DSLR dataset in StarTools 1.5. Aside from activating the Compose module, your workflow and processing considerations are virtually the same. Please see video description on YouTube for datasets and other resources.
This is a very basic workflow using defaults, showing how the new Compose module (replacing the LRGB module in StarTools 1.5) makes complex LLRGB compositing and processing incredibly easy. The workflow details the usual data prep, bias/gradient removal, stretching, deconvolution, color calibration and noise reduction. You will notice this workflow is substantially similar to any other StarTools workflow, even though we are dealing with a complex composite of luminance, synthetic luminance, and color data all at once. Please see video description on YouTube for datasets and other resources.
You are forgiven if, at first glance, you get the impression StarTools offers only the basics.
Getting to grips with new software can be daunting, but StarTools was designed to make this as painless as possible.
You can convert everything you see to a format you find convenient. Give it a try!
