Pixinsight does it and also includes distortion correction so will correct for uneven field flatness between imaging setups, which is useful when you are combining data from setups with differing fields of view and for widefield panaramas. It is a lot more involved than using DSS but can pretty much sort out anything you chuck at it and very flexible.

Nice one Rog. In Ha that makes about 15 hours of data. I have just set PI off registering it all which took a couple of hours yesterday with fewer files.

I'm liking this....

I am chomping at the bit to try some of it... but lacking time just now :(

By my reckoning there is 11 hours+ of  Ha and 13 hours+ of OIII.

My take on 11 hours of Ha data and 13 hours of OIII data from 4 very different setups and presented as an Ha:OIII Bicolour. There is a hint of the borders of the different datasets but worth including for the little Ha and OIII wisps in the bottom corner. At full resolution the depth of detail in incredible and I was very pleasantly suprised at how controlled the stars remained in the pulling as pushing needed to get frames from the differing setups to match up.

Processing this lot is not for the faint hearted!

Great job Chris, I wouldn't know where to start with such a mixture of subs!

Chris

Just chuck all the subs in together in PI's Star Alignment tool. Pick one of the wider field subs as a reference and tick distortion correction and then click GO. Come back a couple of hours later (and that was on a 16 core 32GB workstation at work) and they are all aligned ready for stacking. I did run those that needed it through the hot pixel tool first. The Star Alignment tool is now very powerful indeed and will deal with most things you throw at it. Out-turn FWHM was about 1.5 pixels which I reckon is a very fine result (about 3.5").

Still on one of our 3-d graphics workstation at work (I think the distortion correction would have taken a whole day on my normal processing laptop). I'll bang it up onto Dropbox tomorrow.

Done. I have also stuck the Ha and OIII(registered) stacks on there in case anyone else fancies having a play, without the hassles of registering and stacking.
