Registax and AutoStakkert on OSX


Super Blue Blood Moon happened and everyone came to get these files and Dropbox has temporarily suspended my links. Oh no!

The instructions below for creating your own wineskin packages will still work. In the meantime I’ll work on getting my prebuilt wineskin package links back up.


Updated files! These are working in OSX 10.11 El Capitan. Read Previous posts.

Download Registax for OSX 10.11 El Capitan
Download AutoStakkert for OSX 10.11 El Capitan


Many pieces of software used for astronomy do not have equivalents that can be used by those of us running OSX on macintosh computers. I have made a few wineskin wrapped versions of the software that I am currently using and I have made them available here for you.

You must first download Wineskin Winery and install it.

You can then wrap Software such as Registax and AutoStakkert so that they will run almost seamlessly in OSX. If you want to skip this step, you still need to install wineskin winery, but you can use the wineskin wrapped versions of Registax and AutoStakkert that I’ve prepared below. They are currently running without issue on OSX 10.10.

Download Registax packaged in Wine for OSX.

Download AutoStakkert packaged in Wine for OSX. This wrapper has the windows ffmpeg executables already installed that will allow you to import .mov files without having to transcode them.
