the last weeks I used Siril to photometry Betelgeuse with a slightly defocused 35mm lens (no tracking).
Usually I take a couple of lights, then some darks, then some lights again and so on. So, there are some minutes between each series of lights.
Global Star Alignment without the “Translation Only” mode works flawlessly and I can do measurements on all lights without much noise (even less noise with 0.9.10 than with 0.9.12).
But as far as I understand one should use “Translation Only” for photometry.
Unfortunately, “Translation Only” only works for the first series of lights.
In my case the first two series (in 0.9.10 just the very first series, so there is improvement),
the later lights produce just noise, because the “measurement circles” are at wrong positions:
I hope you can fix this, as Siril works perfect without “Translation Only” mode
Nice to have:
For multi-star photometry and calibration it might be useful to have more than six compstars per run. I do not know how other programs handle this. Maybe you could add some more colors or stay with your color scheme and use one color more than once. To distinguish the individual comparison stars, it would be cool to select a star by its number in some kind of legend and highlight its plot.
To calibrate my DSLR for B-V measurements, I did some measurements in G and B of the same stars.
I think to measure on the new layer you have to use the “Clear all” button and start again with picking the stars.
It would be nice to do these measurements at once, e.g. with checkboxes for R, G, B, but I’m not sure how many users need this.
