Re: Manual, one star

Locking behavior changed back in version 0.9.161. If locking is unreliable, the shape is a square with a hint "unreliable lock". If a good lock is found with a high SNR, the shape is a circle with no hint. It locks on an oval or stretched object showing a square. It just tries to find the "center of...

Re: Manual, one star

I will change back to the 0.9.159 behavior, but show an extra cross if locked.

The lock will not work with oval comet heads. This is because the lock is designed to avoid double stars.

Re: Manual, one star

If it fails to lock then try again pointing the mouse accurately. It should only happen with very faint "comets". If I go through all your images it works, only for one or two images you have to retry. I have modified the code (0.9.160) such that only when it locks, the square is shown. This guarant...

Re: Manual, one star

In version 0.9.160, I improved the handling of selecting objects in manual alignment mode. So the object selection stays at the same place when you swipe/zoom.

Re: Manual, one star

It will not work if you have more then one image for one colour. This is because colour stacking is done in two steps. First it combines the blue, red, green (and luminescence) Then it combines the results. The manual position is lost in the second step. You could fix it manually by stacking the int...

Re: Manual, one star

Hello Serg, I have fixed it in version 0.9.158a. Made a mistake in the code. My main hard disk has failed so it is temporary uploaded as a zip file at: https://sourceforge.net/projects/astap-program/files/windows_installer/ The comet is aligned but the stars are spread out making it an interesting i...

Re: Manual, one star

The formulas indicate something goes wrong:

8:51:49 Solution x:=x+-1428.120000, y:=y+-1221.050000
8:51:50 Solution x:=x+-1416.130000, y:=y+-1220.680000

I'm pretty sure it is related to separate R, G, B files. Will try to fix it, but I'm also struggling here with a hard disk failure.

Re: Manual, one star

I don't understand what happening. Does it happen with an other set of files? How many files are you stacking? What kind of object do you select. A star? Do you see the square around the clicked object? The square is automatically centered on the object. Can you send me a screenshot of the X, Y valu...

ASTAP version 0.9.158 has just been released. This version includes several improvements for colour image stacking. Some previous editions had issues with colour images but they should be all fixed now. There is a new demosaic algorithm, "astro bilinear interpolation. This make white stars for the c...
