Affinity Photo - Milky Way Stacking

Recommended Posts

I have 8 photos taken in quick succession (20 second exposures) of the milky way stars and was hoping to get some noise reduction by stacking in Affinity Photo.  However, when stacked the alignment fails and stars are blurry.  This is a common problem with alignment algorithms due to other things in the photo that are moving in different directions such as the ground objects.  I was hoping I could mask these ground objects and then have the algorithm do the alignment.  I've reviewed all the videos relative to stacking and I am thinking this approach is not possible with Affinity Photo.  Any help would be appreciated.

I can see from the this thread that you were able to find a workaround to your issue :) 

Thought I would include the link here because I'm sure other users will find it useful. Thanks for sharing this with us EddyQ.
