Processing comet images

Would appreciate any tips on processing comet images to bring out fine detail using either AIP4WIN or Astroart. Can produce contour maps but not a lot else.Regards

Roger,I would use IRIS to do anything. Do you mean using a filter like the Larson-Sekanina one or similar?Andrea T.

Hi Roger,IRIS may not be intuitive, but it's well worth persisting with.There are helpful tutorials and guides about, and the yahoo group has a lot of experts on it.Callum
