These video tutorials are to ease the new users into the wonders of Pixinsight

I will not be talking too technical during the videos concentrating on the how and leaving the why for another time

I remember first using pixinsight and being overpowered by the complex appearance and indeed there are some complex processes , but I aim to show that good results can be achieved fairly easily.

I can assure you once hooked on pixinsight you will wonder how you ever managed without it!

Please click on a image to see more information on each video and download them

The Videos will start playing when you click on them or right click and "save target as"

I hope they are of help and let me know if you have further suggestions

If you find the video's on my site of help please consider a small donation to help me pay the costs of running this site , the main cost being the host costs as the bandwidth usage is quite high.

Even a pound will help !





































I suggest that the video's are viewed in order as they are listed below as this was how I used the tools shown to process the Image of M106 contained within them

It is Also the workflow that I use on many of my images (left to right)

Please have a look at the user guide for more infomation on each Process

If you wish to experiment with the M106 images in the video's you can download them here
