Inside PixInsight 2018 Second Edition by Warren A. Keller
In the Second Edition of this book, Warren Keller reveals the secrets of astro-image processing software PixInsight in a practical and easy to follow manner, allowing the reader to produce stunning astrophotographs from even mediocre data. As the first comprehensive post-processing platform to be created by astro-imagers for astro-imagers, it has for many, replaced the generic graphics editors as the software of choice. With clear instructions from Keller, astrophotographers can get the most from its tools to create amazing images. Capable of complex post-processing routines, PixInsight is also an advanced pre-processing software, through which astrophotographers calibrate and stack their exposures into completed master files. Although it is extremely powerful, PixInsight has been inadequately documented in print--until now. With screenshots to help illustrate the process, it is a vital guide.
While this second edition isn't a complete reworking, it is greatly expanded from the 2016 first edition. Newer tools, such as PhotometricColorCalibration, ArcsinhStretch, and the GAME script are fully detailed, while older, mainline processes such as ImageIntegration, are covered in much greater detail. While we thought that the first edition was a near-perfect beast, Warren learned much more since its publication, giving him the opportunity to expound upon, clarify, and even correct many concepts in this second edition. If a user has continued to keep up with all of the changes to the program, by scouring the forum, and studying our Reloaded series, then the second edition may not be essential. But for those starting out, and even for the intermediate processor who isn't up on all of the latest advancements, or who simply wants the most current and complete information, then this second edition is substantially superior to the first, and a must have!
