Quote:It basically influences the scale of the quality estimator. It ranges from 2 (high quality, low noise, fine details) to 6 (very noisy, coarse scale, details barely visible). 4 usually works just fine. I would use 2 for low magnification and very high quality solar or lunar images, 6 for very noisy images of Saturn in blue light at high magnification.
