iris it is almost like "a magical software" that can do almost anything astrophotograpy related.
However, it took me a long time to figure out how to use it. Luckily there are lots of guides on the net to get you going with it.

I use IRIS exclusively for all my astrophotographic processing. It is a powerhouse tool.

Not for the faint of heart, though.

I use it for all preprocessing and now for preprocessing spectra as well.
It is very powerful and very cheap.

IRIS rocks!!!

Well worth the effort... I agree with everyone, it's pretty good at what it does, I couldn't do my spectroscope stuff without it!!!
