Planetary imaging is a complex observing technique involving various steps that cannot be automated, from image acquisition to pre- and post-processing.
Telescope Live offers opportunities across the entire spectrum of activities and for all levels of expertise.
If you are expert in planetary imaging, you might want to obtain your and pre-process your own data through Live Sessions.
Alternatively, you can download pre-processed image stacks in various filters as Pro Datasets.
Such pre-processed image stacks are obtained by processing videos obtained during a live session. These videos can be huge (up to 1 TB or more in size), and it is therefore unfeasible to provide the raw videos as Pro Datasets.
Telescope Live therefore provides optimally pre-processed image stacks as Pro Datasets, obtained by processing these videos using AutoStakkert. The processing is conducted by our planetary imaging expert and tutor Mr Damian Peach.
Both Standard and Premium Pro Datasets of planets are available for Silver and Gold members.
