So, I'm clearly a bit of a newbie to astrophotography. Can someone help me establish current 'best practice' on what files to feed into DSS?
I've read many threads (some rather old, some rather new) and I've lost track of how to get the best results, other than making sure all the colour calibration options are selected 'Off' or 'No' in DSS.
DSS can cheerfully stack my .ARW raw files from my Sony A6000. The ouput from DSS looks green in the DSS 'results' window and on initial load into Startools. I can clean it up quite well:
I saw another thread about eliminating colour balancing in DSS. There is DCraw command to make 1:1:1 R:G:B tiffs. Would I get better results making these tiffs before feeding data into DSS?
Will I need to make TIFF versions of my darks, flats and bias as well?
