I'm real new to the MaximDL package. What's the best way

to 'darken' the background so that the primary image (e.g. cluster

or galaxy) is more prominent. There are so many good tools, it's a

bit confusing for me.

Use the View menu Screen Stretch window.



Sounds like you need to go through the tutorials. Here's the one for

Screen Stretch (on-line version):



www.diffractionlimited.com/MaxImDL/MaxIm_DL/Displaying_Images.htm



Detailed command reference:



www.diffractionlimited.com/MaxImDL/Context2/HID_VIEW_HISTOGRAM.htm



In particular, look at the "Quick Stretch" option. This allows you to

adjust brightness/contrast using the mouse -- up/down for brightness,

left/right for contrast. The image updates in real time as you adjust it.

Neil,

You may also get some us out of a tutorial I'm doing (50% done) that

uses MaximDL for processing, at:



lefevre.darkhorizons.org/articles/proctutorial2.htm



Should have the rest finished up in a week or two, I'm putting up

chapters as they're completed :)

Many of the images in these tutorials are referenced with back slashes

img src=".\images\calnebnosig.jpg and these do not display at all

with Netscape 7

The few images referenced with forward slashes

img src="./images/poorlyframed.jpg

display just fine.
