hi and thanks for the feedback

Filtering outliers would indeed be very usefull. We'd need to check its impact on performance.
Regarding auto-restart : as ALS is not connected to the mount (and won't be in a near future) we would need to rely on repeated alignment failures to assume user slewed to a new target. Would be worth a test.

Please fee free to create feature requests as issues on ALS's repo at github.com/gehelem/als .Who knows, we might find some time or horsepower to put them into ALS

cheers

Some news : ALS v0.7-alpha2 is out !

Just needs a few little cleanups before an official v0.7 release.

What's new since we last spoke :

  • switchable night mode
  • switchable 'save on stop' mode
  • allow manual choice of Bayer pattern for demosaicing
  • Various eye candy and stability stuff

This was made possible by the feedback you guys gave us. This is MUCH appreciated

Test away => als-app.org/assets/releases/v0.7-alpha2/

Thanks again and clear skies to all

I can also open a ticket in you issue tracker, if you prefer that.


Yes, please. A ticket would be great
Thanks in advance :)

Then I tried to get the git version and do the venv install. But this one fails with installing the requirements, as there is no opencv-python==4.1.0.25 available.
Using (available) 4.1.2.30 instead collides with the requested numpy version. At that point, I gave up....


Hi DerPit and thanks for your report and your efforts
Would you mind telling me what system you tried ALS on ?
We'll find a fix

Thanks again

Yes it can !

8 bits, 16 bits, 32bits, unsigned, signed, integers, floats.... anything fits :D

As well as common DSLR RAW files

Hi again everyone and apologies, once again, for the long silence.

Recent times have been quite hectic for us and I guess it is for most of you guys.

I was wondering if you guys have considered making an option to use it as a regular stacker(load a file selection to be processes), or maybe a forked version to be developed into a processing app.

Bravo! :dancers:


Thanks for the nice feedback.

We haven't considered making a standalone app for 'regular stacking'. To be honest, I doubt ALS does a better job than Siril. It may be faster for a decent result, that what ALS is made for, but regular stacking is out of our roadmap, for now.

@El Corazon : I haven't looked into your specific journal space-eating issue yet. I'll try and reproduce it. But I do think this is a system related issue, out of ALS scope.
There are many ways to share files on a network. rsync is one of them. (even though it is file copy) NFS is another one...

I'll ping you guys soon

Clear skies and be safe
