Re: How to avoid an image with the bayer pattern?

Hey Dave, I just restacked the problematic ser file with AS3 and I don't see the grid. Very odd. I will try to capture a few more this week. I don't want to waste your time unless it is really reproducible. I am definitely starting to learn PIPP...it really does quite a bit.
Thanks,
Dave

Re: How to avoid an image with the bayer pattern?

Hey Dave, I finally had another chance to try Jupiter. Captured RAW8 as a ser and avi. Both had the grid pattern. AS3 recognizes the proper debayer pattern but the resulting png had the grid. I loaded the ser into PIPP with a few options (debayer, crop, frame stabilization/planetary). The resulting ...

Re: How to avoid an image with the bayer pattern?

Thanks Dave, I will stick to SER from now on and I will take the time to learn PIPP. Interesting that PIPP read two different debayer patterns for you. Maybe that is just an example of why AVI isn't so good. I also downloaded you debayer guide. Quite helpful. People like you really contribute so muc...

Re: How to avoid an image with the bayer pattern?

Hey Dave, Thanks for spending so much time on this. Regarding AVI vs SER: I believe SC selects AVI by default for RAW8 and SER for most other color schemes. I assumed it was smarter than I am so I accepted those settings. I will definitely try to force it to SER and see what happens. Regarding the d...

Re: How to avoid an image with the bayer pattern?

Hey Dave, Yes I am sure it is debayering-related somehow but I have just spent the last couple of nights running every different combination of settings with resolution, color space, SC debayer preview on/off, drizzle on/off and there is absolutely no commonality as to when it happens or not. In fac...

Re: How to avoid an image with the bayer pattern?

Hi Dave, Thanks for the response. I have attached the AS!3 file (renamed with a .txt extension) and the SC camera settings. This was captured with my Evo 8 and ASI 294 MC at f10. Exp 5.4 ms, gain 243, Captured 500 frames and stacked best 10% RAW 16 and debayering was done in AS with Auto Detect. I t...

How to avoid an image with the bayer pattern?

Hello All, Here is an example for the output file I am trying to fix or, better yet, avoid altogether. It was captured in SC (I think .ser format), stacked and drizzled in AS!3 and sharpened in RS6. The camera was an ASI 294 MC and the pattern was present after stacking so Registax was not the cause...

Re: Dealing with vignetting

But it seems like you got good results with whatever settings you used to create your flats, so I'd be interested to learn about the settings you used. Thanks. Hi Robin, I made some new flats tonight and they worked well just like last time. Here is a screenshot of all the settings. Definitely had ...

Re: Dealing with vignetting

Hi Robin, Hmmm...Beginners luck for sure! I know I created a mono flat withOUT the bias checkbox checked. I think it is not checked by default. Brightness was set to 12. I adjusted the exposure to get the flat's histogram centered around 50%. I can't remember where it was but it was in the ms range....

Re: Dealing with vignetting

Hi Robin,
I have learned so much since I started this just 3 months ago and it is all because of people like you on these forums. Definitely want to give back as much as I can. BTW - I ordered the 50 mm Lunt. Looking forward to its arrival. Thanks for your help on that.
