Accessible astrophotography tools keep getting better and better. Here, I review and walkthrough of my new favorite piece of software for processing astrophotography: Starry Landscape Stacker.
In the video below, I walk through my entire process for combining multiple exposures into a single noise-free photograph of the night sky using Starry Landscape Stacker. Download Starry Landscape Stacker at the Mac App Store.
Where to Buy Equipment
I personally buy almost all of my equipment through B&H or Amazon. We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program and the B&H Affiliate Program, both are affiliate advertising programs designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and B&H affiliated sites. As the largest online retailers in the US, they both have an excellent return policy and they usually have the lowest prices for camera gear anywhere online. If you are considering buying any equipment, consider buying through the affiliate links on this page. You won’t pay anything extra but Lonely Speck will receive a small commission (usually 2-4%) to help run the website.
This article is part of Astrophotography 101, my growing series of lessons on astrophotography. It’s completely free for everyone. All of the lessons are available on the Lonely Speck Astrophotography 101 page for you to access at any time. Enter your email and whenever we post a new lesson or blog post, you’ll receive it in your inbox. We won’t spam you and your email will stay secure. Furthermore, updates will be sent out only periodically, usually less than once per week.
