Registax wavelet settings
      #823984 - 02/13/06 10:41 PM

Aloha
I guess I missed a post were somebody discribed the soft, medium and hard wavelet settings for planetary processing.
I can not find that post anymore...was recently I believe..
I just want to know what most you guys wavelets settings are in Registax ?
Thanks again.

Freddy

Just depends. (Good answer, eh?)

As for the values, I dunno, it depends on how my file is reacting. What I usually do, though, is start with #6 and then work my way up the stack decreasing a little each time. I think for my last Saturn it was 30, 25, 18, 13, 8, 4 or something like that.

If it looks too harsh at that point, I work back the other way, starting at #1 and reducing each 3 or 4 levels. It really is just fiddling around. I know you were probably hoping for a more precise method.

Jupiter I always ran it little harder, mars never seemed to like much wavelet processing, and in fact worked best if I switch it to "Gaussian"

Other applications have been given a lot of press here lately. So I'll let those guys chime in. If you are gonna use another app for the heavy processing then you'll only want to apply a little wavelets in Registax and use the other app's tools for the main processing. I'll have ImagesPlus any day now. I'll probably run some planets through its tools to see what I get.

Hey Freddy it was mine,

To explain my settings, please take into consideration 10" reflector 300 odd frames stacked out of 450. Seeing was 8/10. The finished product was split into red green and blue avis, each individially put through registax. The 2nd from the right gave me just enough detail to work with and then astra image -> lr deconvolution, combine colours, slight unsharp mask, median. A histo stretch is automatically done by astra image, for me this is preferable to letting registax do the histo stretch during stacking.

The end result of say using the 2nd right instead of going heavy on the wavelets (the far right one) is that the end result i feel is a sharper image of the detail that is present without starting to introduce my own processing artifacts.

I have saved these wavelets settings in registax as soft, medium and hard.

Aloha David,
Yes that's the one I was looking for !!!
Thanks ! I'll try to safe these settings in Registax.....
Love to see more of your pictures..

Also thanks to Mark, nice website Mark

Thanks guys

I love threads like this! I wish more of the accomplished images would share. For me I work off of the 1,45,45,45,-5,-5 scheme.

For some jollies, try looking at this page, it contains about 25 folks wavelets on a single image.

Mike Unsold is the creator of Images Plus, cool to see that image in there!

Neat site, Paul!

Thank you Paul!!! This is exactly what I was looking for about a month ago.

You know, this might actually form the basis of a Beginning Imaging Challenge ... call it Beginning Processing Challenge:) The moderator posts to a file server, a 10 Mbyte avi of a planet of interest ... let's say Saturn. The challenge is to see who can arrive at the best looking image. Of course, all submissions must include full documentation of processing.

What say ye?
