First test using a Ubuntu desktop install to process my data.

I used Pixinsight natively under Linux and Photoshop CS3 running under VMWare Workstation Pro 15 on a Windows 7 guest.

Color calibration was my main concern using this setup. I calibrated my monitor under Linux with Argyll using a Colorvision Spyder 2. The Windows guest under VMWare seemed to behave as far as color went so hopefully this will look right on most people's monitors.
