Recognition self-made data / public data

09 Sep, 2019 16:02
As I’ve read here many people do not like do mix up and compare self-made images and such which are based on public data. Especially  if the public data is made with professional telescopes like Hubble, Faulkes-Telescope, Liverpool-Telescope and so on, it should be marked. So it would be good, if there was a checkbox in the basic informations which must be set for self-made data and public data. In my opinion this should be taken into consideration for the selection of IOTD for it is not realy fair to compare amateur images with professional images.

The "Data source" drop down on the basic image settings form does exactly that.
