Fundamental Workflow Examples

These videos take you through the workflows of different image sets. This experience binds together much of the material presented in PixInsight Fundamentals - as you can see it all in action. Please do review the other sections before watching this workflow series. However, if you cannot wait- these workflows can be followed as "recipes" for how to create images in PixInsight. NGC3486 is now the most up-to-date with the latest methodologies software updates. The M51 example also has good information.  CMOS and DSLR examples are also available below!
