hi theninjagecko and welcome to RP.

what you've got there is what we call a paper texture or scanner texture or just plain unwanted texture, however it was put there.

the solution is the FFT filter. this stands for fast fourier transform. there are a couple of good sources of information on this here in RP. just do a global search on the forums for fft or fourier and you shld find the links on where to get the fft filter and how to use it for removing what you want to remove here. it does work.

there is also a piece of software called 'Image Analyzer' which has this filter built into it and is very easy to use and works nicely also. the program is free and you shld be able to find the links for it in the links library here on RP. there is also at least one semi-tutorial thread and some examples of how well it works here in RP. just do a search for image analyzer (or analyser, with an S... i forget).

one of those two is your solution, fft or fft in image analyzer.

you're welcome.

just make sure you do a global search and not just on one forum.

Any ideas?

Hi there

I ran the image below thru Image Analyzer and had good results.

I often zoom in and out when viewing the stars.. sometimes you find some you missed. I also take my time and completely black out the stars. And just in case only click on the stars not the long lines.

It requires a lot of work with imageJ. I ran the FFT multiple times & it isn't perfect

Thats rpetty good, so you dont click on the stars along the line? what about the ones almost i nthe centre of the very bright bit? and the white dots far away ?

Thanks

Below are screen shots of before and after.

You may want to experiment with the view scale. Sometimes you can find stars you missed at a different scaled view.
