AutoStakkert! is all about alignment and stacking of image sequences, minimizing the influence of atmospheric distortions (seeing). Its goal is to create high quality images of the Planets, the Sun, and the Moon, without too much hassle.
A small and incomplete list of the features:
  • Support for TIFF, FIT, BMP, AVI (uncompressed) and SER files (thanks to Heiko Wilkens). MOV files and other compressed files are also supported when FFmpeg executable is available to AS!. In principle there are no file size limitations.
  • Monochrome and color recordings (both raw bayer, and RGB).
  • Very fast processing due to multicore support and advanced image buffering techniques.
  • Multiple Alignment Points (MAP) results in accurate alignment especially for wider field images (Sun/Moon), but even planetary targets such as Jupiter benefit significantly from MAP.
  • Frame viewer to quickly scan through all the frames (sorted by quality)
  • Sophisticated MAP analysis and recombination to ensure sharp stacking results. Yes, I like to throw in some fancy words, but it actually works…
  • Automated frame rejection techniques to remove poor quality and incomplete frames.
  • Batch processing.
  • And much much more…!
