“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.”

“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!

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