      Hi Maziek,

      I have been working on this topic in the last few days. It seems that
      two values are critical:

      * under certain circumstances the nominal lm is estimated ways to bad
      (in particular when reference stars are measured automatically), which
      has a serious impact on both lm calculation and meteor brightness
      * it is also fatal if you use a ref file from a night which was partly
      clouded.

      I have implemented some counter-measures which will hopefully improve
      the situation, but they still need to be tested and it has been
      completely overcasted here for the last two weeks. :(
      So don't expect a new beta in the next few days.

      In the meantime, you should measure a new reference image with RefStars
      (using the correct gamma values) and then take the ref file from the
      next really clear night. That should help.

      Best wishes,
      Sirko
