Hi Bart

I Just picked mine up as well. I have been using the soft copy recently and found it useful.

The hard copy is paperback and itís split into a hefty Manual incorporating workflows with some good explanations and a really useful reference guide that you use in conjunction with the manual.

I reckon Rogelio had an eye out for resale as it comes in a presentation sleeve. Keep it safe!

The reference guide is pretty comprehensive suggesting when to use a process or script and what the parameters cover

The book itself is well written and the author does a good job of explaining why you use a process as well as what else you could use and when you might make those choices.

A bit expensive but will be well used in my case so will be worth it

I ordered it as well.

PI is a good program but has a steep learning curve and different way of doing things.

I have been using it in small doses and wouldn't mind using it more.

APP is another program I am interested in learning.

Photoshop's monthly fee is a pain and it has not really advanced anything useful for astro for some time. Its panorama stitching tool is not as advanced as the free Microsoft ICE and noise reduction, sharpening tools are all out of date.

Greg.

Hi Greg, you reminded me I really should cancel my subscription as well. I am down to using it to just to resize images as I still have not figured out how to do that in PI For posting here...

GIMP (on Linux, Mac or Windows) can do re-sizing for you for free, with several algorithms available. It can do a whole lot more, too.
