Is it OK or recommended to use the RGB24 setting?

Thank you.

Better to use the raw8 mode if your camera supports it as your capture files will be three times smaller which may also give you higher frame rates when saving to disk. Additionally when using this mode the stacking software can use more advanced debayering algorithms to provide higher quality images in the final stacked image.

Cheers, Robin
