I find that a curious comment. As I think its just the opposite; very little available for planetary image processing with a Mac and not a huge amount, but plenty of very good deep sky software both for imaging and processing. Just shooting a video isn't much help w/o ability to stack thousands of frames and process.
What do you recommend for stacking and processing planetary video with a Mac? AFAIK there is nothing Mac compatible like Autosakkert or Registax (both windoze only). Does Lynkeos even work on an Intel Mac, cause it barely worked on the old ones? And Keith's Image stacker is ancient and very cumbersome. Maybe I've not seen it if something new is out there. I would love to have something to replace or update my old (but still works w/ my licensed older FW cameras) unsupported AstroIIDC.
I guess I should clarify my statement. I made some assumptions based on his hardware, and level of expertise (new to astrophotography) and was making a recommendation based on what he might find easier to do from a process standpoint, not based on the software that is out there. Planetary is relatively easier than deep sky imaging for a number of reasons.
But you are absolutely correct from a software standpoint, planetary processing software on the Mac currently stinks. Both the apps you mentioned are not actively being developed, and currently, those are the only choices for processing. There are a lot of options for capturing planetary, but that's it. There's a ton of options for deep sky imaging and processing, so we're well covered in that regard.
I've spoken to both Peter at Cloudmakers, and Mabula at Astro Pixel Processor, and there's interest in developing something to fit this niche which is currently lacking on the Mac. It's more in line with what Mabula does, and he only needs to write an algorithm to align and stack a planetary image, as he's developing wavelet processing already for another update.
For myself, I use bootcamp to take advantage of Autostakkert and Registax, and this is the only reason I use Windows at this point. Everything else can be done strictly on the Mac side of the equation.
