neutral settings for capturing

Wish to know best settings in sharpcap for getting the most "raw images". Have been told white balance should be set to 50. What about brightness, should it be set to zero? Are there other settings that affect the "rawness" of the images. Would setting everyone to auto be the best? I have a zwo 294 ...

Re: do livestack controls affect raw images?

Thank you for the reply. So does this mean that the controls on the right such as white balance, brightness, etc should be set on auto in order to get a raw image for the individual frames?

how to set time and gain

Is there a way to know how to set time and gain so that faintest details in an object can be captured without overexposing brightest parts of object. Thinking of andromeda galaxy and orion nebula.
