Hi Phil,

Rule of thumb for StarTools is FITS, 32-bit Integer.

Other formats and bit-depths can work too, depending on your situation and other settings/parameters/attributes but the above if fool proof and will get you the best results w/o hassle or caveats under most circumstances.

Hope this helps,
