DeepSkyStacker has been released in its latest version and is now available. DeepSkyStacker is a freeware for astrophotographers that makes it easier to manage the pre-processing steps of deep sky imaging. It simplifies registering, stacking, post processing and saving the resulting image.
After an imaging session the software takes your images (light frames, darks frames, offset/bias frames, flat frames) and prepares them for post-processing. The Live Version provides the ability to oversee the result of an ongoing imaging session being created as the images are downloaded from the imaging camera.
The program is meant to be used with post processing software such as PixInsight and does not provide post processing features. The latest release information is available on Github.
