Features
  1. Automatic and manual exposure - Auto and manual exposure settings will optimize the exposure automatically, or let you set it yourself.
  2. Automatic align and stack - The software can automatically align and stack a series of images, using state-of-the-art techniques, to provide an extremely low noise, highly detailed single composite image.
  3. Color saturation and balance - The AutoStar Suite includes the tools to adjust color saturation and balance, eliminating the need to use Photoshop or other aftermarket tools to accomplish this pre-publication step.
  4. Stretch options - Auto-stretch automatically brings out dim objects in short exposures. It optimizes the contrast of objects, with adjustable contrast settings.
  5. Automatic dark subtraction - Dark frames are automatically stacked and averaged, then subtracted, eliminating hot or cold pixels and giving you a clean final image. "Fix Cold Pixels" removes "holes" in images resulting from saturated dark pixels during long exposures. "Fix Hot Pixels" removes cosmic ray strikes and noise pixels.
  6. Resampling - Allows you to smoothly increase or decrease the image size from the standard 510 pixels wide x 492 pixels high with minimal image degradation.
  7. Live histogram - Helps you optimize for the best exposure.
  8. Blink comparator - This allows you to align and blink images taken at different times for supernova and minor planet patrols.
  9. Magic Eye focus - Built-in focusing program for super fast, no-hassle focusing.
  10. Autoguider capable - The software also allows the Deep Sky Imager Pro to be used as a sensitive and simple to use autoguider for guiding long exposure 35mm photos or CCD images taken with a second DSI Pro or your existing CCD camera.
  11. Time lapse photography - This built-in program lets you create movies of the rotation of Jupiter, moons transiting Jupiter, lunar occultations, etc.
