Citizen Sky is now officially permanent part of the AAVSO. In the coming weeks we will be moving additional content to the AAVSO site and freezing this site as an archive of the 1st three years of the project. Please visit the new landing page for future updates.
Hi!I just read the draft tutorial for IRIS and that made me realize how user-unfriendly IRIS is for importing and calibrating raw images, while the aperture photometry part is quite nice IMHO.(also in AIP4WIN, it doesn't seem trivial to extract the GREEN channel from the raws without AIP4WIN white balancing the image IIRC.)So, what about the following procedure:Instead, use FITSWORK http://freenet-homepage.de/JDierks/softw_en.htm to* extract RAWs* calibrate rawsmaybe even stack images then save to FITS fileand do the aperture photometry in IRIS. The advantage would be that many people who are interested in astronomy and own a DSLR may be familiar with Fitswork already, and for those who aaren't, it's quite user friendly IMHO.CUHeinz-Bernd
