Re: .AVI Files from ZWO ASI224MC are Blank in Astroart7

Verify that you are using Astroart 7 Service Pack 4 or newer, 32 bit version, usually FireCapture AVI can be opened. Maybe for some reason that AVI cannot be decoded, sometimes from the 64 bit version, nowadays the AVI file format can be just a container for any other file format. For stacking video...

Re: Statistics window: exclude edge columns/ rows?

Hello, wouldn't it be better an option for Camera Control or the ASCOM plugin to always cut those rows? Actually there should be an option in the manufacturer driver: a camera should always be able to present images which contains only useful data. Am I missing something? For the moment the fastest ...

Re: How does "software binning 2 x 2" DSLR RAW work?

Yes, the procedure is 100% correct.
When you need only one channel, you may also consider the Demosaic algorithms "Green channel 2x2", "Red channel 2x2", etc. which disable automatically the white balance, bias and saturation.

Re: Astroart files .sta

Hello,
It's possible to use the command "Open" from the Context Menu of the Stars Window.
Isn't it working?

Re: How does "software binning 2 x 2" DSLR RAW work?

In that case the colors are still decided by DCRaw so they may be different from simple RAW R,G,B. If you need them for photometry, you really need to import the images as true RAW and demosaic inside Astroart.

Re: Make all images same size/crop all?

Hi, I would use the command Image/Borders (right section, where it's possible to write the actual size of the selection).

For Rectangles/Crop it's possible to select the rectange on the first image only, then just Crop on the other images, the first rectangle will be remembered.

Re: Processing History

Thanks for the feedback.
In the first page of Preprocessing, the buttons "Open" and "Save" do save an entire Preprocessing (files used, options and filters applied). The "Recent" box instead only saves (automatically) and retrieves the files used.

Re: Processing History

There is not a way, unless you meant PreProcessing, which can be saved.

By the way, would you use that to apply the processing to similar images immediately, or to remember the processing for the future (or both, or for other purposes ?)

Greetings,
Fabio.

Re: Plate solving problems using script

Hello, this may happen because in AA6 also RA and DEC keywords are used for EstimateRaDec, and they have higher priority, so RA is read in degrees but it's expected in H,M,S. You may solve with: ra = Image.GetKey("CRVAL1") / 15 de = Image.GetKey("CRVAL2") print ra,de res = Image.FindCoordinates(ra, ...
