Unfortunately, I was unable to download the video processing program, however, I m sure the basic material is relevant to other programs like SharpCap I m a beginner and simply having any reference material in astroimaging is a blessing The books have plenty of great, explanatory pictures and the text is clearly presented I hope to put these books to use in the months ahead. Ready for next year now
