This is quite a major update with a lot of interesting new stuff to play with.

Well worth upgrading just for the new Photometric Colour Calibration tool. Works really well on the half a dozen images I have thrown at it.

... and the new Large Scale Rejection addition to Image Integration is just brilliant at removing sat or plane trails from a stack of a limited number of images.

the new Colour Calibration Tool really is very good indeed.

I tried this for the first time tonight,    FAIL !!!    Pixinsighr always has problems plate solving any image I have.   Tried on M45

Performing RANSAC: done
*** Error: Unable to find an initial set of putative star pair matches
*** Error: The image could not be aligned with the reference star field
Please check the following items:
The initial coordinates should be inside the image.
The initial resolution should be within a factor of 2 from the correct value.
Adjust the star detection sensitivity parameter, so that the script can detect most of the stars in the image without mistaking noise for stars.
The catalog should be matched to the image. Choose the appropriate catalog and magnitude filter, so that the number of stars extracted from the catalog can be similar to the number of stars detected in the image.
*** The image could not be solved.
This is usually because the initial parameters are too far from the real metadata of the image.

** Warning: Process finished with errors:
  PCC_T_O6H2LPPT6LIZ.xisf: The image could not be solved

*** Error: Failure to plate solve image: Image13

Rog

I have found the new solver process for this pretty robust as long as the parameters are in the right sort of ball park i.e focal length and pixel size.

If you can dropbox the image I will give it a try.
