Re-processing my solar image using dithering in AutoStakkert 3

I have discovered dithering in AutoStakkert 3, which uses slight variations in pointing to improve resolution – this amazing process, first developed for the Hubble Space Telescope, uses slight variations in pointing of the telescope to improve resolution beyond what the sensor on the camera can achieve. In the case of amateurs, the slight variations are due to errors in the mount pointing – the first time I have come across poor quality astronomical components actually leading to improved views of the cosmos!

The image below has had its size increased x3 through the AutoStakkert 3 dithering routine – I have to then reduce back to 2500 pixels as this is maximum that this WordPress site will accept.

It definitely shows more resolution than a similar image I previously posted that did not use this routine.
