Hi,

 

I've been playing with StarNet module on Pixinsight. So much fun! It does not work as good for color images BTW. What is your experience?

 

Please check then in higher resolution:

I agree Manuel, I have had better luck with the monochrome version of Starnet++.

I made a page on my personal site with some of my starless mono images:

Impressive mosaic, thanks for sharing! I will use it as map for planning of my summer imaging of dusty lanes in Cygnus wink.gif

 

I also observed that StarNet is working better for mono images. Results for color images are not so impressive as starless mono.

These are fantastic, Manuel.  I've never compared mono vs color for StarNet, but I'll certainly try that out on my next image.

those are great images, i am a fan of the starless Ha stuff.

 

what i usually do is try starnet++ on the RGB image and if there are too many weird artifacts, i split the image into it's 3 channels and try the mono starnet on each and then recombine. sometimes that helps cut down on weird color blotches.

Well I've been known to be a sucker for starless images :D So I do use it a lot, basically for all my narrowband images. Yours look great! I never took the time to do a large panaroma like you did yet. I also went the cheap way and used lower focal lengths for that.

Nice images!

 

Yes I always do Ha, OIII separately in starnet and then combine them for color.
