PixInsight for Newbies Reloaded

 

2- Hour Virtual Workshop

August 17, 2021

Warren Keller and Ron Brecher are rebooting their popular online workshop series designed to make YOU Masters of PixInsight! These information-packed monthly workshops cover all aspects of deep-sky image processing, with the goal of helping students learn about the most important tools and settings needed to create jaw-dropping astrophotos.  Working directly with Warren and Ron, and practicing with the data and resources provided, you’ll move confidently from beginner to experienced user in no time.

PIXINSIGHT FOR NEWBIES RELOADED

After a night of catching photons, you can hardly wait to see and share the cosmic beauty of your photographs! While many options for deep-sky image processing software exist, none can match PixInsight for its versatility. As a very powerful program, the learning curve can seem daunting to the new user, but we’d like to show you that it’s not! In this workshop, we’ll take the mystery out of the PixInsight user interface, and show you how to preprocess One-Shot Color data with the Weighted Batch Preprocessing Script. The first Virtual Workshop will also demonstrate a compact workflow. We’ll cover:

  • The PixInsight user interface

  • Evaluating the quality of individual subframes

  • Making master frames from One-Shot Color (OSC) data

  • Compact OSC workflow

  • Saving a project for future use

  • Saving a JPEG to share

Future Virtual Workshops will expand on this basic workflow and delve more deeply into specialized topics.

 

WHAT YOU’LL GET

Attendees of this workshop will receive the following:

  • All of the data and project files used in the workshop

  • Process icon sets to use on your own data

  • Unlimited access to a recording of the workshop

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