Description

I downloaded a free trial of PixInsight. I've processed a couple of other images with it, but this is the first time I managed to follow a workflow all the way to a finished product. I had previously processed with StarTools, and I am much happier with the stars and background in PixInsight. I may just have to pony up the funds for a permanent license.
