StarTools wont open file

Postby mhamburg » Mon Feb 29, 2016 8:07 pm

After a successful stacking in DSS (image saved as .tif), StarTools will not open the file saying that it can not read it. This is the first time this has ever happened. The 1st one is of The Flame and Horsehead Nebulae; the second of The Rosette Nebula. The initial images from DSS look good.
Michael :think: ... e.tif?dl=0 ... F.tif?dl=0

1 hour later: I discovered that I needed to reset and specify how DSS saves the file. It must be specified as a .fts file! All is good now. :-P
