Dear Forum

Could you please advise what I need to take into account when setting the two parameres in Mass Lynx 4.1 for the Savitzky Golay Smoothing function.

There are the Smoothing Iterations and Smoothing Width?
1: How does one determine what to set these at?
2: Does the half the peak width advice of the Moving Mean apply to the S-Golay smoothing also?.
3: Are there upper limits for the number of smooths?

Would you recommend either one or the other for and HPLC MS analysis of alkaloids?

I am new to chromatography analysis and would appreciate any advice

Thank you for your time.
