Have you seen the log file it is in the startools folder.
I have seen it, but I think it would be good that when you save your image you could have an option to download a text file along with it.

Re: Bayer matrix showing?

Wow. First thing I've seen anything like this! :shock: If you find out what it was, do let us know! It had been very warm (happened on consecutive nights), I cooled the camera with the ascom driver which is very quick. I think it needs to be done through APT and cooled slowly. I may need to dry the...

Bayer matrix showing?

Hi

Imaging last night RASA8/ZWO ASI 071. 50% moon. Icould see the bayer matix on the images downloading into APT. When stacked and opened in StarTools I got this. Any ideas what causes this.

Thanks

Saving Log automatically

I was wondering if it would be possible for the system to attach and download the processing log when saving an image. I would find that very useful.

Re: Adding Ha data to OSC data.

Thank you. Given you object is a galaxy (which is usually poor in Ha detail) and not a nebula (which is usually rich in Ha detail), you will want to add the Ha to your red channel to make the HII areas in the spiral arms stand out. There are a couple of ways of doing that. The most flexible, fool-p...

Re: Adding Ha data to OSC data.

Hi, Much depends on what your goals are and the characteristics (e.g. exposure times) of the datasets. You can add Ha as color, luminance, both. Do you want to retain visual-spectrum colors? etc. (see also here https://forum.startools.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1573&p=6731) Any further information wou...
