PC Helpline / Help with Starnet
« Last post by Carole on Jul 26, 2020, 16:16:04 »
I would like to be able to control the masses of tiny stars.  I have tried Straton and Annie's actions but they just seem to make a mess of the nebulae.

After several attempts I have finally managed to download Starnet to my laptop, (it won't install on the desktop). 

I got it initially to process a mono image and it processed 100% of the way through and then would not save the resulting tiff.  I am no Whizz with computers, but any idea why?  If you know I'd be grateful for an explanation in simple to understand terms please.

Lol Hugh, you really are pareidolial.

Thanks Mark and Robert.

Please see my "help with Starnet" thread.

Oooh! A bit of pareidolia on looking again!

Looked at the yellow patch above the blue bit and can see a face.

No Technical comment ~ I just really like it!

The star at the top gives a sort of 'ting'! (is that a technical comment?)

Best

That's a great result - I really like it.

You seem to have mastered narrowband now and you're producing some really good images.

Very yellow!  Both tails are quite clear.

Thank you Robert.

Here is one more version, using Starnet to control the small stars.  I have been trying to do this for some time but I could not get Starnet to install on my Desktop or my laptop, and results with Straton and Annie's actions made a mess of the Nebula, so this has been Starnetted by a member of Astrobin for me, and I have put the brighter stars back.

Am currently having one more attempt to install it on my laptop - watch this space.

That's a great result Duncan! 

It really brings out the nebulosity in a way that can't be achieved with broad spectrum imaging.  It's the perfect target for your filter.

As you mention, it keeps the stars small as well.

Noel

Thank you once more!  Narrowband and RGB processed separately. Once stretched, I brought them altogether (I use PixInsight) and added Ha to R and OIII to G and B. There are scripts in PixInsight that help do this. After that it was a matter of adding more saturation and detail
through masks, including making use of a script that removes all stars from an image and leaves on the nebulosity (called StarNet) which I used to add more saturation.

That looks great Duncan, the filter is paying off well for you.

Edit: I noticed you’ve what looks like a halo around 52Cyg.  I’ve not noticed haloes so could you confirm. I’ll take one of that area myself to check.
