Normalize Scale Gradient: Fundamentals Edition

Published 06/12/2021

 

UPDATE! Please visit John Murphy's website to download the script. It is no longer part of the official distribution but can be obtained by following the link.  

The NormalizeScaleGradient script, by John Murphy, is a leap forward in obtaining optimal Integrated images. By allowing this script to normalize images through a robust photometric method of determining scaling factors between images, the results yield sensible image weighting, improved pixel rejection and a simplification of co-added (averaged) gradients. The sections below are for members of Fundamentals- a fuller demonstration and explanation of this script is in Horizons.
