The simplest most concise instructions for getting up to speed in Pixinsight. Imagers just starting in PixInsight who complete this course will have a solid framework for making and creating optimal images in PixInsight. Virtually no background knowledge required. Only at AdamBlockStudios! 

This is a $60 training course as a stand-alone item which you can Buy Now -in addition, your purchase amount goes towards buying PixInsight Fundamentals if you choose to continue your mastery of astro-imaging! (You will receive a code in the email receipt of your purchase... take note of it!) This course is around 3 hours of training. If you are enthusiastic, in a single day you can both make a color image from the provided data-  and also take what you learned and instantly apply to your own images. This training course is different than other tutorials- here you will learn not only the steps but a powerful approach, a literal way to think about image processing with PixInsight that will serve you well beyond the concrete instructions given here. The sample data in this course is on-shot-color (OSC) from a CMOS detector. This is the popular configuration for many imagers today.

**PixInsight FastTrack for Beginners is included with a subscription to PixInsight Fundamentals which is the full collection of tutorials as well as PixTV! See The Plans for the full picture.
