DeepSkyStacker: Handy application for processing deep sky photos.

DeepSkyStacker is a one-of-a-kind application that was created for astrophotographers that need to process deep sky pictures, while also providing them with the necessary support for popular file types, which include JPEG, BMP, PNG, TIFF, and RAW images.

The program comes with a large window with a clear-cut structure, where users will be able to open pictures from dark, flat, dark flat, or offset/bias files, and they can also open a file list to cycle through the photos with ease.

The selected images can be used as the reference frame and will have the ability to convert to light, dark, dark flat, flat, or offset/bias frame, while also being able to register them by computing the offset and stacking afterward.

It will also allow users to tweak the levels for the red, green, and blue channels, luminance (darkness, mid-tone, highlight), and saturation, and when it comes to RAW images, users will have the possibility to use auto or camera white balance, select the Bayer matrix transformation mode between bilinear interpolation, AHD interpolation, Byer Drizzle algorithm, and creating superpixel from the raw Bayer matrix, among other.

DeepSkyStacker is a handy application for astrophotographers, that offers them the necessary tools to process deep sky photos.
