Happy New Year to everyone of my readers. I thought I would start the first post of the new year with some images I’m pretty happy with. Recently I was faced with the decision of which astrophotography image processing software to buy. I wanted something which had enough processing functions/modules to be able to process my astrophotos well, while not being too difficult to learn (or require me to watch tutorial videos every time I am processing a photo), and definitely not too costly. Hence after watching a few videos on how an astrophoto is processed with StarTools and factoring that it costs A$60 (under £30), I decided that it was definitely worth buying.
