  1. Thank you for your quick reply and sorry for my late response. I have uploaded three groups of files to my Google Drive. There are three images which include the horizon, three images with the horizon cropped off (to eliminate its influence), and three images where I tried to manually align the shots including rotating them (centred on the comet's head). In all three cases I couldn’t get the images to align. There seems to be distortion going on. Is it possibly related to the fact that I forgot to turn off image stabilization on my Canon M5 while shooting from a tripod? There would be about 15 seconds between each shot since they are from the first, middle and last of each sequence. I just upgraded the program before trying again with no luck. Here is the link to the files: https://drive.google.com/file/d/13U7sloX9Qqqn45MP1qU6kZrW6oz4SL07/view?usp=sharing Thank you for looking into this. I have high hopes for your product, Bob Morgan
  2. I am having the same problem. I took 20 shots of Comet Neowise a few days ago and Affinity Photo couldn’t align them at all. The composite look the same wether I selected to automatically align or not when creating my stack. I used a flimsy travel tripod and pushed the shutter button for each shot, which I didn’t think would be a problem because I understood that even handheld shots would be sufficient. Assuming I needed to have the shots better aligned in the first place, I tried again two nights later with a very solid tripod and using the self tmer to do 10 consecutive shots (the timer’s limit). Again I was disappointed to find no alignment adjustments at all. Is this mainly a problem for astrophotography with it’s fine points of light? My photos did include the horizon along the bottom of each shot.
