Inside PixInsight (The Patrick Moore Practical Astronomy Series)

In this book, Warren Keller reveals the secrets of astro-image processing software PixInsight in a practical and easy to follow manner, allowing the reader to produce stunning astrophotographs from even mediocre data. As the first comprehensive post-processing platform to be created by astro-imagers for astro-imagers, it has for many, replaced the generic graphics editors as the software of choice. With clear instructions from Keller, astrophotographers can get the most from its tools to create amazing images.  Capable of complex post-processing routines, PixInsight is also an advanced pre-processing software, through which astrophotographers calibrate and stack their exposures into completed master files. Although it is extremely powerful, PixInsight has been inadequately documented in print–until now. With screenshots to help illustrate the process, it is a vital guide.

Needless to say it’s been cloudy ever since. This book will be fantastic to get me through to the clear nights I need. Hope to have some skills under my belt by then too! I shall update and post an image or two after I’ve completed the book and found out exactly how much it has helped me :-)So after my very first slightly out of focus imaging session I am pretty happy with first light and first…

  3. I felt like information was being highly truncated to fit If I was brand new to PixInsight, I probably would have rated this higher, but I find that free online resources had already gotten me to 90% the level of understanding offered by this book, and in many cases much more thoroughly. In too many cases, I felt like information was being highly truncated to fit, and for a deeply technical product like PixInsight that’s not good. With the exception of a few good tips here and there and the last few chapters that focused on specialized tools (again,…
