Regim

   
     

22.05.2014 Version 3.1 now available for download!

What is Regim?

Regim is my software tool for processing astronomical images.
Regim is not meant to replace complex image processing systems like Adobe Photoshop or others. It is meant as an addition to them. It makes some processing steps that are unique to astronomical images a bit easier. These steps are calibration (dark and flat), deblooming, registration, combination, color calibration, gradient removal and some more.
Installation and usage is at your own risk.
Regim is free and may be used in unchanged form. However if you find it useful please feel free to make a small donation.

Please send me an email for details.

I would be happy to receive some feedback about the software.

There also exists a Yahoo discussion group about Regim: http://de.groups.yahoo.com/group/regim_astro/

Supported file formats:

For reading camera RAW files Regim uses jrawio (http://jrawio.rawdarkroom.org) as standard.
As an alternative DCRaw (http://www.cybercom.net/~dcoffin/dcraw/) may be used.
Many thanks to Fabrizio Giudici (jrawio) and Dave Coffin (DCRaw).

Installation requirements:

Regim is completely written in Java and should therefore run on any plattform with a Java runtime environment (JRE) Version 1.6.0 or higher. It was tested under WinXP, Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and several Linux installations.
You should have at least 1 GB memory, 2 GB or more are highly recommended.

Installation and start

Unzip the file regim.zip on your harddisk. In the folder regim you will find a file regim.cmd (for Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8) and a file regim.sh (for Linux and Mac OS) Call from this folder the corresponding file for your operating system.
Please also read the manual which is available here for download also. (Sorry, in German only at this time.)
Note: Please be aware that you need a Java runtime environment version 1.6.0 or higher on your computer. Is this not the case, you can download it at http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp. The use of OpenJDK is not recommended
Important for users of 64bit-Windos systems: If you use Firefox to download the Java runtime environment from the site above it seems that at the moment you always get the 32bit version. Therefore I would recommend to use InternetExplorer for the download and make sure you get the 64bit version.
