Does "Flip" Matter for Dark Frames?

When creating a Dark Frame library, do you need to generate a set for each "Flip" camera setting that you intend to use for the camera? If doing a capture sequence that involves a Meridian flip, you have to flip the camera view as part of that. Can the same Dark Master that was used prior to the fli...

Re: Live Stack with Flat Frame Bug?

Hi BlackWikkett, I asked: "AFTER you have created the Darks and Flats and entered them into the Pre-Processing field, the histogram changes. Do you do a FINAL white balance for the Red and Blue channels to get them aligned again before starting the Live Stacking?" You Replied: "Yes The live stack hi...

Re: Live Stack with Flat Frame Bug?

Thanks! A couple points of clarification: Darks: Are the White Balance levels important? You can't exactly build a Dark library in advance if you don't what these Red and Blue levels need to be in advance, right? If so, then what settings should be used for the Darks when building a library in advan...

Re: Live Stack with Flat Frame Bug?

Robin and BlackWikkett, I'm having these exact same frustrating issues with my ZWO ASI294MC Pro camera for Live Stacking and using an Optolong L-Pro filter. Is there any update? I've just read through the entire thread and here's what I surmise so far. I have question marks where I'm certain what to...

Re: Do dark and flat frame work during live stacking?

Just had another thought....If its true that the orientation (flip or not) of the darks and flats must match the lights, then we would need to have two different orientations of these any time that you do image acquisition that involves a Meridian flip. Correct?

Re: Do dark and flat frame work during live stacking?

This made me wonder if I have an issue related to dark frames...Do they have to be taken at the same orientation (flip = none, etc...) as the light frames? I created a Dark Library but have no idea if I had the Flip set to something other than "None".

Re: Flat Frames with ZWO ASI294MC

IPPIU: Are you using SharpCap for Live Stacking with your dark and flat frames with your ASI294MC camera? If so, can you please let me know what light panel you're using and your complete process? I'm getting some strange color issues and am wondering if it's my light panel or some other configurati...

Re: Flat Frames with ZWO ASI294MC

Hi Robin,

Are you talking overall noise or the read noise? My ZWO ASI294MC Pro camera has a higher read noise (6-7 e-rms) from gains of 0-119, then it drops to 1-2 e-rms after gain settings of 120 and larger.
