View Full Version here: : Solar Image alignment
09-06-2012, 04:27 PM
Is there an easy way to align/derotate solar images without having to do it manually one image at a time? I had a bit of rotation in part of my transit of venus imaging run that I'd like to remove to make a smooth animation. I thought registax would do it however I can't work out how to get it to save the registered images - it seem to only alow you to save the finished stacked image.
Any assistance would be very much appreciated.

Got it worked out now - done manually in PS

What a painful process. :(

Sure was but given the movement of the sunspots and venus and the rotation of the disk I don't think an automatic option would have worked.

I concur with what you have done. Currently i have over 446 video files to process of the Ha shots. To shorten that i am doing the shots 3 minutes apart on average from start to finish. then to align them which will be via a similar process to yours Peter
the deshaker plugin for virtual dub can do it :-)

Watched a youtube tutorial and it looks good. Definately worth a try.

so how does it go together? unfortunately i cant see youtube at work - will have to see at home. I have 126 frames - will this rotate and align them?

I use Adobe after effects to do that sort of work, set the alignment/tracking points and it does the rest. You can then put it back out as an image sequence if need be.
Bit of a learning curve if you haven't used it before though.
