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. Start with the M51 example and go from there! NGC 3486, though older, connects with the lessons directly. CMOS and DSLR examples are on the way as well!
