I guess this goes here, since it's about gimp?
I've been trying my hand at astrophotography, and would like to try gimp-plugin-astronomy but I can't figure out how to get it all working in gimp; there are instructions included, but I fail at "make".
Anyone here tried stacking star field images in ubuntu? I have a version of Regis that takes .arw files but there's a steep learning curve for that... at this point I'd really like something more simple and less sciency, I'm really just looking froward to making some pretty pictures, not serious astronomy. Primarily, what I'm looking for is a simple way to align and median-stack the short exposures that I make (without using a tracking mount). I've had some success with align_image_stack from huginn tools, but that's pretty much it :/
To install gimp-plugin-astronomy on Linux systems, please install gimp*-dev package, gsl-dev package,
make and gcc (this should also install the necessary packages gtk*-dev, glib*-dev, etc.).
tar -xvjf gimp-plugin-astronomy-VERSION.tar.bz2
