Getting there. AutoDev does not seem to work very well for me. I am prob doing something wrong but I am having better luck with FilmDev at about 80%
It takes some getting used to. Using FilmDev, especially when starting out, is rather common, and some people stick with it and I guess become pretty good.
I imagine it's that the development slider seems similar to a levels stretch that everyone probably has some experience with. Still, the likelihood is that a better detailed stretch will occur with AutoDev. Last night reading around I stumbled across this relevant discussion on Startools that was pretty interesting: https://forum.starto...opic.php?t=1743
When I first got started I was drawing repeated ROI boxes, in vary shapes, all over the place and getting a little frustrated. Now I kind of have a feel for where a box should go and I just throw it up there. Then instead of redrawing it, I start clicking or sliding the X and Y controls to squeeze or expand the box. After first dialing in the ignore fine, of course, usually at the point where it balances out with the darkness and contrast. Then if necessary I can fiddle with the shadow linearity control. I usually don't need to mess with the outside influence, and anyway if you zero it there's a chance of clipping.
One thing about the AutoDev showing those nice details in a ROI box though, is that you can kind of be tricked into overstretching beyond what the overall image data can handle. That section might look nice, but in the end you can have a bunch of muck that can't be eliminated.
Finally as with any software I think, the better the data the better Startools works. Try some tutorial or other excellent data and you'll be amazed at how little you need to use Wipe and how good the Autodev makes it.
Remember too that this data here is a little off perhaps. With your telescope I really don't think you should have had those blue halos to deal with.
Anyway, from the logs you should be able to replicate the ROI used by me or copper280z, and then tweak other settings to just watch what happens. Pretty big jump already though from your first try to the latest!
