Is gimp any good for astrophotography?
Gimp 2.10 has been released. The big advantage for astrophotography is that Gimp 2.10 now has full support for 16-bit int and 32-bit float images. Photoshop, at least the version I have, CS6, only has partial support for 32 bit float. Combine this with the rawtherapee raw converter and it is quite a powerful set.
