    Thank you Scott.

    Always nice to see how others are approaching processing with Star tools.
    And this guide will come in handy for our winners of the Star tools software.

    Some of the modules look very simple and yet the settings can make some very powerful changes and differences to the image.
    A lot of experimentation is required to see what each can do.

    Your tutorial certainly covers the basics well!

    Some people don't understand why I love astronomy so much! I cannot understand why they don't!

    Thanks for the tutorial. I missed this when you first posted it (too busy preparing my next imaging session I guess). Just happened to bump into it this afternoon!
