PIPP – Moon – Processing of movie

Usage of the PIPP program is relatively simple. It is recommended to follow the step rules – from left to right, going through all the tabs of the program, starting from the Source Files tab and ending with the Do Processing tab. We will go successively through the tabs, processing the Moon with an example light frames that I collected with my telescope. I will focus only on those options that I need to use. It is not my goal, to describe every available option, that’s why the manual is available on the PIPP page.


Planetary Imaging PreProcessor installation with Linux (K)Ubuntu 18.04 LTS system

The PIPP program was written natively for Windows systems. As a Linux user you probably know about Wine emulator for Linux. It is possible to install PIPP on Linux over Wine. The project page has a description of how to install and run the PIPP program over Wine.

Personally, I performed the installation in a different way than described on the PIPP page. I used the PlayOnLinux overlay, which is definitely a better and simpler solution for handling Wine, in addition it allows you to conveniently manage the environment of the Wine program and the programs it support, of course written for Windows systems 😉
