Next Steps for Newbies


October 11, 2022


2 Hour Virtual 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 

  • Unlimited access to a recording of the workshop

  • An opportunity to win a door prize from our generous sponsors
