Great innovation in the automation of astronomical nights Maxpilote V4 provides additional response using analysis MaxSelector to evolve during the night schedule. Very friendly and most comprehensive support available directly from each tab.
This software allows you to estimate the FWHM of your images, allowing you to see the quality of your raw data. It also calculates the roundness of stars, an important parameter for alignment during pre-processing. The sky Background should be constant. A cloud, and the moon slightly increase its altitude will degrade your stack by increasing the noise. The SNR (signal noise ratio) is an overall quality factor of the image. Curvature and Tilt parameters can be used to adjust your mechanical settings.
