ASTAP v0.9.107

Post by han.k » 14 Sep 2018, 15:54

To all ASTAP users,

ASTAP version 0.9.107 has just been released. This is a major release. The routines around the solver engine have been heavily modified.

For the plate solver/ astrometric stacking it is no longer required to enter a magnitude range range. The program will extract automatically sufficient star from the database.

For large images as 3200 pixels wide or wider, a down sampling /binning routine has been added in tab alignment. This will also increase the signal/noise ratio. Also the colours are combined then to a monochromatic image improving the signal to noise ratio.

A bug in saving 16 bits files was discovered. Values above 32k are now saved correctly.

Please report any problem/bug or idea to improve the program.

I'm not happy with the current performance. The program is currently too slow while measuring correctly the HFD values. I'm working on it but for the time being you could download the old version 0.9.104 from:

With version 0.9.110 all problems should be solved.
