Recorded Workshop

This is a continuation of our PixInsight for Newbies workshop. Now that you have begun to harness PixInsight’s powerful toolkit, it’s time to take it up a notch. In “Next Steps for Newbies”, Ron and Warren will expand on the basic workflow with the following powerful tools and techniques for both One-shot Color (OSC) and Monochrome cameras:

  • Adding CosmeticCorrection to preprocessing to eliminate hot pixels

  • Superior background modelization with DynamicBackgroundExtraction

  • Spectrally-based color balance using PhotometricColorCalibration

  • Making a mask for precision noise reduction and color saturation


Whether you use an OSC or a Monochrome camera, these enhancements to your workflow will help you get the most from your nights under the stars.




Attendees of this workshop will receive the following:

  • Two full data sets including lights, darks, biases, and flats

  • EXPANDED process icon sets to use on your data

  • An ENHANCED basic workflow to get you making great images with your own data



Warren Keller and Ron Brecher have teamed up to deliver a series of information-packed Virtual Workshops covering deep-sky image processing with PixInsight. Each session will help you learn about the most important tools and settings needed to create jaw-dropping astrophotos.  Working with Ron and Warren, and practicing with the resources provided, will help you move confidently from beginner to experienced user.
