Thanks Pete, I appreciate your comments.

I have been used to processing CCD images with applications such as CCStack and ImagesPlus which I have found to be excellent.

However, CCDStack keeps crashing when I try to process (load) between 180 and 230 ASI1600MM (4656x3520 pixel) frames so I did a bit of reading up of PixInsight and it solved my problems.

The Batch Processing function just gobbled up 230 frames and produced a much cleaner looking result, where Nereid was very obvious, so I am now a PixInsight fanboy.

The attached files are full resolution crops from the output of PI.
