CCDInspector alternatives ?
« on: October 28, 2013, 06:57:36 PM »
Is there any other more reasonably priced alternatives to this software. I had a free trial but it ran out before I had a real chance to try it and now won't load unless to purchase the full package at $174. I don't mind paying for software but considering you can get BYE and ATP for about a third of that it seems a bit steep for what it does

So hopefully there's an alternative package that let's me check my image train. Or will I have to shell out $174

I guess so but I'd prefer to have it on my dell as that's the laptop I use for all things astro :) I deinstalled it and scrubbed all trace but it refuses to re install. Was hoping there might be an alternative I could try before I parted with more cash. I've bought loads of astro ware only to learn later there were other options that I preferred :(
