Starry Landscape Stacker makes it possible to produce landscape photographs taken at night that have low-noise and stars rendered as points. It does this by compositing several images taken in rapid succession, shifting the sky as needed to align the stars.
What's New in Version 1.3.1
Added a popup menu that appears at the "Adjust Stars" stage that allows the user to select from 4 densities of red dots, from "Many dots" to "No dots". The red dots represent automatically detected stars. By choosing the best dot density the time spent hand-editing the red dots or the sky mask can be significantly reduced.
Changed controls for brush sizes to make it easier to control small brush sizes without using the "[" and "]" keys. This is particularly useful for users who do not have "[" and "]" keys on their keyboard. Fixed some issues with consistency of brush size when zooming in and out.
Fixed an error that would cause a crash when attempting to align some images that are difficult to align.
Fixed a problem where undo did not behave as expected after clicking on "Adjust Sky".
