Somebody recently recommended a different software package than DSS for stacking and stretching all in the same tool, but I can't find that thread. Was it APP?
I am really starting to dislike DSS. The stacked images look absolutely nothing like what I expect them too, which is an average of the lights corrected for vignetting by the flats (I don't expect to visually see much from the darks or biases from the test shots I've been making while waiting for clear dark skies). Instead I get an extremely dark image with greatly increased noise and crazy color balance written out in a tiff format that displays differently in every piece of software I open it in. Maybe it's user error, but I really prefer software that is intuitive to use.
Anyway, what is your favorite stacking software that is not DSS?
