HOWTO Debayer Captured Images

Post by turfpit » Tue Jul 18, 2017 12:16 am

The attached document is in response to post viewtopic.php?f=19&t=228. The document describes how to use the program PIPP to debayer RAW images so that they display their colour.

I hope people find this document useful - all comments welcome.

For convenience, this is the abstract for the document included in the above post.

Abstract:
When capturing data using a raw colour space, such as RAW8 or RAW16, SharpCap (and other image capture programs) will display colour on the screen but saved files will appear to be monochrome and may display a grid pattern. Additional software is required to generate the colours – a process known as debayering. This document describes how to use the program PIPP, https://sites.google.com/site/astropipp/ , to debayer single or multiple images.

Thank you so much!!! This is exactly what I was looking for. I have been pulling my hair out trying to get DSS to stack my raw8 files. At least now I know I wasn't doing it wrong.

Thanks for the kind words. There will be more of these type of documents coming along as my knowledge advances.
