Hey everyone,

 

I remember when I started out the exciting journey of astrophotography, the learning curve was quite steep and it can be quite challenging to begin. I spent hours watching YouTube tutorials on how to do stuff. But what I needed was a short, sharp, and precise video that tell me exactly how to do things instead of spending most of the time in philosophical speculations, stories about someone's grandma (no offense intended).

 

So I have created a few videos that aim to do this very task. If you are a beginner, this is for you. Hopefully, this will save you some time.

3. Siril- How to Edit Astrophotography Photos in Siril (1 Minute Tutorial)

I am intending to create more of these videos so if you have a request, please reach out.

I also watched hours of Youtube videos and online tutorials. I actually didn't think I could handle it because of Pixinsight which is an awful complicated program. I'm glad I stuck around and found out there are other programs which can do the same job. I use Siril for stacking and Photoshop for stretching. Photoshop I already knew and Siril was easy to understand. 

 

Good to see your videos are to the point. I learned a lot by watching different people explain things.

Thanks for sharing your experience. I agree, Pixinsight is very complicated. It's already a steep learning curve and add Pixi into it, feels impossible.
