Masters of PixInsight Workshop

The next Masters of PixInsight Workshop continues their popular “Newbie” workshop series and will be hosted virtually on Tuesday May 14, 2024, at 7 PM EDT.

Masters of PixInsight WorkshopThe Newbie Workshop series by Warren Keller and Dr. Ron Brecher is designed to take participants from a simple 11-step processing workflow and build on those steps. Each workshop contains imaging data and process icon sets to let you follow along step-by-step. You’ll then be able to use these customized process icons on your own data.

There are six previous Newbie workshops that are available in addition to this latest workshop titled “Acquisition Best Practices.” This new addition to the beginner series will help you get optimum results during acquisition of your imaging data. Imaging strategies will be examined that will make the best use of equipment, given the realities of your imaging conditions.

As the name suggests, the Masters of PixInsight Workshop series provides a learning experience for PixInsight which is an advanced image processing software platform. It has been designed specifically for astrophotography and other technical imaging fields. PixInsight is a modular, open-architecture system where the entire processing and file handling capabilities are implemented as external installable modules.

PixInsight has been ported as a native 64-bit application to Linux, macOS and Windows operating systems. PixInsight is a strongly multithreaded environment able to exploit all processors and processor cores available on modern hardware.

PixInsight is both an image processing environment and a software development framework. The core PixInsight application integrates three user interfaces: a graphical interface, a command-line interface, and a scripting interface based on the JavaScript language. As a development platform, PixInsight provides the PixInsight Class Library (PCL), an ISO C++ framework for development of PixInsight modules, and the PixInsight JavaScript Runtime (PJSR), an ECMA 262-5 compliant environment readily available in the core PixInsight application.

The cost of the Masters of PixInsight Workshop is $35. You can learn more here.
