Lynkeos Eclipse chaser plugins pack is released

As the name suggests, this distribution contains plugins intended to process images of a total solar eclipse.
. "Manual align" allows to manually align the images, as the automatic alignment algorithms do not work correctly on the solar corona.
. "Stack (total solar eclipse)" stacks images with a wide range of exposure ; it also cancels artefacts caused by the ransition between the lunar edge and the inner corona.
. "Radial unsharp" process the corona with a radial unsharp mask, which enhances the spikes and streamers of the corona.... read more
