I added a new field to the basic image settings, called Acquisition type, with the following options:
This new field is also available as a search filter and to filter Top Picks.

Great to have this option, Salvatore!|
Thanks again for adding it as EAA has really evolved even over the past 2 years with the advancements in camera technologies. While not like traditional AP, it has its challenges in trying to get the best observable "image" (view) in a relatively short period of time. Usually without guiding and no post-processing. Basically, what you see is what you t get, making it a fantastic way to observe many DSOs in a single night to share with others and learn as well as educate.

|Thanks this is great!|

thanks for your strong engagement in improving astrobin at any time. I am unsure, what categorie is the using of a normal DSLR (e. g. Canon EOS 1100Da or 700 Da) in the deep Sky- imaging.
Can you help me in that question because I want to chose the correct one in my uploadings in the future? Is it the first (traditional = default) as I suppose ? Thanks a lot in advance.

I have some perplexity in this matter. From the "EAA" page you linked: "In general, though, the application of any sort of technological aid for the enhancement of astronomical viewing falls under the EAA umbrella".|
So what makes EAA different from lucky imaging in this matter? And consequently: why they are in two different categories?
And what is traditional? What I should expect from a picture taken with traditional method? A picture taken on film and a manual mount? And what if I use a computer to enhance a film picture and post it on AB? Wouldn't it be an application of technological aid for the enhancement of astronomical viewing? If my reasoning is correct then it would be impossible to post a traditional picture since anything posted on AB passes thru the use of something technological.

Awesome! I've added this field to a good chunk of my planetary images from last summer. However, with most of my 400+ images being acquired with lucky imaging, it's clearly gonna be difficult to edit them all with a six click process per image. I think it would be nice if we could bulk edit something like this since it's brand new.|
Also, I agree that "traditional" is a bit vague. No doubt to me that it's meant in the sense of DSO imaging, but lucky imaging could also be labeled as "traditional" for planetary imaging.

I'm not an expert because I only recently learned about EAA, but it seem to me that it makes sense that it be recognized on AstroBin.
The page I linked explains clearly what is the different between EAA and AP as most people do it on AstroBin:
So leave it as "traditional" unless you don't do EAA or Lucky imaging specifically.

That's really the elephant in the room with AstroBin capabilities, and my next priority as far as "large tasks" are concerned. Hopefully I get a long stretch of free time in the future so I can tackle it.

|If I read this correctly then almost all images (almost, not all) are EAA, or? Not quite sure if this helps in any form when using filters.|
# 01 Nov, 2019 13:01
|After a remark about me tagging images as EAA, I have changed this back to "Traditional". I more or less understand what is meant with EAA, but with "Traditional" I thought imaging on film was meant, as I started this way many years ago. So "Traditional" is generic for imaging on Film, CCD and CMOS as I understand it now and how Astrobin intends it?|
# 01 Nov, 2019 13:08
Geert, i read this like you do:|
- EAA is for anything like livestracking and no postprocessing
- Traditional is for anything with postprocessing
Don't know if this is correct, but for me this definition works fine :-)

# 01 Nov, 2019 15:59
Here are my rough definitions:|
EAA = live stacking of individual images. Post-processed or not. Sharpcap is a dominant tool.
Lucky Imaging = video frame stacking to choose “lucky” frames or sub-sections of frames to stack in a later session. Autostakkart is the dominant tool. Each video frame is likely to have an exposure time measured in milliseconds to a few seconds.
Traditional = individual sub-exposures are captured and stacked after session. Exposure times are likely to be from several seconds to many minutes.
# 01 Nov, 2019 16:21
|Nice, Kevin. Frankly, we can all use whatever definitions we want but I specifically asked Salvatore to add EAA as I see no post-processing making it the biggest distinction from other techniques. The tools or software used are not as essential as SharpCap, for example, is used for both EAA and AP.|
# 01 Nov, 2019 16:31
Indeed. I use SharpCap since i started this hobby and have never used the livestack-feature (with one exception). I even didn't know for a long period that this feature exists.
