Even the way StarTools displays and scales images, has been created specifically for astrophotography.
StarTools implements a custom scaling algorithm in its user interface, which makes sure that perceived noise levels stay constant, no matter the zoom level. This way, nasty noise surprises when viewing the image at 100% are avoided.
StarTools implements a custom scaling algorithm in its user interface, which makes sure that perceived noise levels stay constant, no matter the zoom level.
Even more clever, StarTools scaling algorithm can highlight latent and faint patterns (often indicating stacking problems or acquisition errors) by intentionally causing an aliasing pattern at different zoom levels in the presence of such patterns.
The Bin module puts you in control over the trade-off between resolution, resolved detail and noise.
The De-Noise module offers detail-aware, astro-specific noise reduction, which, paired with StarTools' Tracking feature, yields results that have no equal.
The notion of linear data versus non-linear data has been abstracted away completely.
Increasing 'Smoothness' progressively ignores such correlation, allowing for more aggressive noise reduction in areas of higher correlation.
StarTools' Detail-aware Wavelet Sharpening allows you to bring out faint structural detail in your images.
