"Flip Both" affects color in RAW8 mode

Hi Robin, I was collecting images from the lunar eclipse last night and after a meridian flip I decided to use the "flip both" option to get the image oriented the same as before the meridian flip. Today I discovered that all of the images after I selected "flip both" did not debayer correctly in Pl...

Re: Raw8 Frames

Thanks to Dave (turfpit) I now have a working solution for this. The key is the input setting in PIPP. You must check "Debayer Monochrome Frames" under input settings, and then select "RGGB" under "Colour Debayer Options". The RGGB selection works for my ZWO 224MC camera, but may be different for ot...

Re: Raw8 Frames

Thanks for that link Robin. I downloaded it and gave it a try, unfortunately still no joy, at least in DSS. It's strange because DSS says on the file info line that the files are RGB 8-bit, but when it stacks them, it comes out in B/W still. I think this may be a limitation of DSS, although when I t...

The manual says that Raw8 files can be debayered by programs like Registax or Deep Sky Stacker, however, the captur...

Re: Histogram Reset Adjustments, and a few others

Thanks for all the info Robin. Gamma of 0.5 usually makes my images too noisy, but I'm always playing with the settings. You are right that I was capturing in RAW8 for the video. Somehow I never noticed that before. I think maybe I used to capture in RGB but I think I saw somewhere that RAW8 gave hi...

Histogram Reset Adjustments, and a few others

Hi Robin, I had my first chance to use Sharpcap 3.0 pro, ver 3881, last night. I've been using Sharpcap for a while now and it is terrific. I have a couple issues to report though. I am using a ZWO ASI224MC and I have windows 10 (latest updates). 1) When I click "reset adjustments" in the histogram ...
