Starry Landscape Stacker makes it possible to produce landscape photographs taken at night that have both low noise and stars rendered as points. It does this by compositing several images taken in rapid succession, shifting the sky as needed to align the stars. A free trial version is available on the developer's website.

Excellent Software

I bought it thinking it may not work as described for the price… I was very pleasantly surprised!! It works as described and is super easy to use even though it’s doing some complex work in the background. Definitely worth the purchase!!

Purchased this software to process stacked images of comet Neowise. Did an amazing job of removing noise from the images. Be sure to read the tutorials on the developer's website to ensure you process images correctly. Looking forward to seeing how this app evolves.

Great job!

Starry Landscape Stacker is amazingly easy to use, and does a fantastic job. The program chews through 20 tiff stacks with ease, and provides significant noise reduction while lining everything up perfectly.
