“I have dabbled in astrophotography for some time and followed your adventures through Photoshop to PixInsight. Although my fundamental understanding of the processes and mathematical background of the software are limited it is always a delight to follow your explanations and detail in the presentations.

I have also had a version of PixInsight for many (many) years and made invested many days of effort trying to get to grips with it. Sadly without much success! However, I have found your ‘Fundamentals' package to be most excellent and although not proficient, I feel very confident in using PixInsight thanks to your superb tutorials. I now think it is time to move on so I have invested in Horizons. So pleasures to come! Thank you for putting all this together.

“Hello Adam Maybe you find the image included interesting for your purposes...it's the same picture, exactly the same data, but before and after your courses..the data are not perfect, but it's clear some improvement... I hope it will be useful for marketing...

Your pictures are masterpieces. Thank you for sharing. Thank you so much also for your on line courses about Pixinsight indeed. They changed my mind and my pictures improved a lot. 🙏 🇮🇹

 

Here are two pictures; the first is the one I started from, the other is what I was able to get after listening to your Pixinsight Fundamentals videos. Maybe it would not be the best picture ever but I'm pretty satisfied with it.

“The videos are outstanding. I've been using PI exclusively to process my images for some years now and accordingly have some experience and proficiency with the program. Nonetheless, found the videos to be very helpful and informative. Particularly useful are your easy to follow explanations of how the various tools and processes work. I feel certain that these tutorials will significantly shorten the learning curve for both new and experienced users.

"I have just finished viewing the Pixinsight fundamental sections and Adam has presented an outstanding series that is brilliantly executed. The sessions are well organized and Adam is able to explain very complex subjects and make them understandable. He not only presents the why and how but what to do when things do not go as planned. To me this is invaluable. Before, I have tried to understand various workflows from other sources but became frustrated because I could not get the same results. I almost gave up on Pixinsight. After going through Adam’s sessions, I found a new enthusiasm for the program. Another unique feature is Adams willingness to share freely his vast knowledge and expertise. He always answers question in a timely manner. I would highly recommend this series for beginners and advanced uses, there is something for everyone. The program also makes an excellent reference source that one can use time and time again. I am looking forward to future sessions."

“Wow - Great series of courseware, it's like getting a 2 week workshop at a great price, and at my own pace. I really stepped up my image processing game with Adam's PixInsight tutorials. Can't recommend them highly enough: easy to understand, incredibly thorough, and explains the "why" not just the "how".”

“Like your CCDStack and Photoshop video materials, the new PI materials meet the high level of presentation quality that provides the viewer with substantive information to start and improve using PI. Providing users with the philosophy behind using PI processes to meet quality imaging objectives is invaluable. The videos far exceed the information quality found on YouTube or elsewhere. I'm looking forward to the possibility having some example work spaces to follow along with the videos. I am working alone on improving my PI skills and find the videos a powerful way to orient myself in the techniques of quality astrophotography processing that meets my desire to go beyond cookbook demonstrations of the program's use.”

“Adam's tutorials available in Cosmic Canvas are truly remarkable. As with all of his tutorials, they are clear and concise and a cornucopia of image processing gems that show in detail how the master creates his astonishing astro images. The tutorials cover the entire imaging process from calibrating data in CCDStack to using some indispensable tools in PixInsight. Adam also demonstrates the use of masks in Photoshop to refine image details and many more of pearls of wisdom that will enable everyone to improve their image processing skills. I look forward eagerly to his PixInsight tutorials.”

“Fantastic value for the hours of videos - Professionally done and well presented, entertaining and engaging - definitely top notch.

“I just wanted to say thank you to you for knowledge sharing of your processing skills and experiences. It was quite a while ago I purchased some of your video guides, “Making every pixel count” series, one for PS and one for CCDStack, and these really helped me on my astrophotography way! I feel strongly that without these I may have never progressed to where I can process now. I use many of the methods shown in those now, and have made adaption’s of these from the test processing I have done. I think your every astrophotographer’s processing hero and global benchmark for the best, stunning results. Thanks a lot for having a look at some of my images, and all the best!

“Just wanted to thank you for sharing your expertise in astronomy image processing. Thanks to your video tutorials, I was able to adopt your processing methods and was selected as APOD for today!

Looking forward to your new tutorials, and hopefully some deep dive to PixInsight functionalities as well..”

“Adam, you have the best tutorials... I first used them for Photoshop, and now with PixInsight. Your delivery and expertise are perfect and share the right amount of information at the right rate. I love that you keep the humanity in the videos instead of editing out, so that we know you're just like the rest of us, albeit more skilled, and not just a robot! Your work is also breath taking.
