Newbie here.

 

I've been using Siril to convert and stack my raw files but sometimes it fails.  When I get to the registration step I either get an immediate message that registration fails or it goes through the painstaking process of considering each image and rejecting it.

 

So far this happens to about 10% of my stacks.

 

I've tried telling it to use a different color channel (that worked once out of three times).  I've also tried all the algorithm options.

 

Any idea what I am doing wrong?  Is this just a limitation of Siril?

 

(Technical details: Nikon D7000 camera, 15-30m total integration time, different OTAs, mediocre to poor tracking)

 

I am also interested in suggestions for other linux based, open source, stacking software.  I am aware of APP and PI and other commercial products, but at this time I am only interested in open source that runs under linux.

 

Thanks,

-David
