I am trying to use xregister to register dithered frames... The max off-set of any frame to the reference frame being used is about 15pixels in either x or y..
I have had to use xregister in several passes in order to get my images fully registered - that is to say although with each pass, xregister shifts my image in the right direction, it does not shift it far enough so I have to put this partially registered frame back into xregister so that it will get shifted a little closer , and so on until finally the image becomes registered.... the following lines of code will clarify what i mean:
#...... and so on until //_passi at which point the images will be registered
and the parameters I used are those shown in the above code....
Could I alter parameters so that I only have to run frames through xregister one time?
Also note, there is partial fringing in both the ref_image and images to be registered...the fringe pattern is the same in both the ref_image and the images to be registered... So I think one possible reason for the number of passes I had to use is that xregister was conflicted as to whether it should keep the fringe pattern aligned or shift everything so that the astronomical objects are aligned instead....but I recall trying to use xregister on non-fringed images and I think the problem of needing several passes happened there too..
Final point: The quality of the registered images is significantly degraded from those of the initial images and this time I suspect that the fact that there was a fringe pattern may have caused this.....
comments on all the points raised above are appreciated
