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.  CMOS and DSLR examples are also available below!



NGC 1491 Workflow (2023)


Published 2023-12-12 

Includes new BXT usage.


Everyone Should Know This! 

Watch this Presentation I gave for the Astronomical League in June 2023. It is a simple processing workflow everyone should know.

"I am one of your Fundamentals subscribers and have just finished working on the M42 processing tutorial. I have never been satisfied with my attempts multi-exposure HDR imaging of Orion, but am now happy with the result I attained after following your tutorial."  -member of AdamBlockStudios

NGC 1333 (2022)  NGC 1333 Workflow

(Dusty Nebula example, RGB, Starless image, Mono data, Undersampled, most Current WBPP)



BEAUTIFUL NGC 3486 (2021 version) NGC 3486 Workflow

(Spiral Galaxy, LRGB, subtle enhancements)

(Excellent example of "non-professional" (typical) data with an OSC data set.)


One shot color (OSC) data has a few minor variations in how to initially handle the information. Then most of the processing follows exactly the same types of paths illustrated in previous lessons. The videos below are a bit dated... but there are some good explanatory examples demonstrated.

(This is a kind of challenging one. There is a better M51 example in Horizons. )
