PixInsight Introduction

Rick Stevenson


PixInsight (http://pixinsight.com/) is an advanced platform for image processing designed specifically for astrophotography and other forms of technical imaging. It runs on Windows, OS X, Linux and FreeBSD. It is extremely powerful but has a fairly steep learning curve for new users. Rick Stevenson has been using PixInsight for several years and rarely uses anything else for astronomical image processing. He will demonstrate the PI user interface and guide the attendees through a simple LRGB workflow for CCD data from calibration to a final image ready for web publication. Sample data will be provided.

Attendee requirements: 
Own laptop with PixInsight installed. Trial PI licenses can be requested at the PixInsight web site
