NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade siril -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade siril -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

SIRIL is an astronomical image processing tool.

It is specially tailored for noise reduction and improving the signal/noise ratio of an image from multiple captures, as required in astronomy.

SIRIL can align automatically or manually, stack and enhance pictures from various file formats, even image sequence files (films and SER files).

SIRIL is targeted to amateur astronomers having acquired images and wanting to process them in a semi-automatic way.

SIRIL uses modern and powerful processing algorithms running in parallel in order to speed up the time of processing.

Nearly the whole processing chain is available in SIRIL. With only one software you can produce high quality images for print or web diffusion.

SIRIL is fully capable to pre-process and process astronomic images by offering to the users a large set of dedicated algorithms. So far, due to the high level of its star detection algorithm it is quite performant to process deep-sky images in an easy way.

Thanks to the ability to directly process SER videos, SIRIL is adapted to the deep-sky lucky imaging technic. All algorithms work to use all cores of the computer, making it possible to process more than 60,000 frames with minimal effort.

New features are being introduced quite regularly. Here is a list of main features:
* Native image format support
* Image conversion (to the native FITS format only)
* Images pre-processing with bias, darks and flats masters
* Image registration
* Registered sequence export
* Image stacking, with optional additive or multiplicative normalization
* Enhancement and processing of final images
* Image compositing tool, combining and aligning multiple channels
* Plotting various pieces of information about an image sequence

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.

Version Downloads Last Updated Status
SIRIL 0.9.12 60 Thursday, June 11, 2020 Approved

Released September 23, 2020

This version is a the beta version of Siril 1.0.0. In consequence, we only distribute the packages for the 3 most common platforms (Windows, MacOS, GNU/Linux). See the download page.

But as usual, since siril is a free software, it can be build on any OS from source, see the installation page.

What's new in this beta

This beta is mainly a bug fixes release

  • a bug in demosaicing orientation.
  • version has brought a lot of improvement in the demosaicing feature, but a lot of change as well. A lot of new camera is now handled by this new Siril and the introduction of a new FITS keyword tries to make more standard the way we choose the debayer algorithm orientation. However, a bug was present in the 0.99.4 that led to choose the wrong debayer orientation for BOTTOM-UP files with odd height.
  • a bug in macOS package where Siril was not multithreated while processing FITS files
  • memory leak in pixel max/min stacking
  • crash when selecting 1 pixel
  • integration in low resolution screen
  • embed ICC profile in png and TIFF files
  • default Siril now checks update at startup
  • default Siril now needs "requires" command in Script file
  • of image display with pan capacity
  • button + and - for zooming management
  • many other fixes...

What's new in Siril 0.99 branch

  • UI with a single window
