Re: ASI071 MC-PRO not working with Nebulosity (MacOSX)

Hi Ted, The problem I was having was that Nebulosity was not supporting the newer ZWO cameras yet (ASI071 MC-Pro in my case). So I switched to a cool program in the OSX App Store called AstroImager 3.0. which works really well for camera control/capture. They have more recent updates at the AstroIma...

Re: Cannot Debayer images

Vince, Did you see this topic: https://bbs.astronomy-imaging-camera.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=7780 Before I did this I had massive color cast issues. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to check if it carries over into night sky imagining yet due to lack of significant clear sky opportunities. But at ...

Re: Cannot Debayer images

Remember I’m a rookie, but I think think things work best if you do everything EXCEPT align and combine BEFORE you debayer. Anybody feel free to correct me if I’m wrong. Nebulosity’s 4.0 manual does a good job of explaining the reasons for doing things in order.

Re: ASI071 MC-PRO not working with Nebulosity (MacOSX)

Heads up: Nebulosity still has not been updated. The good news is Astroimager 3.0 works great on with the 071 MC-Pro and the latest version now seems to be on the Mac App Store.

Re: Debayer setup for ASI071 MC Pro?

Just a quick note. I took long distance land based images with my scope after this manual demosaic set up and debayered it in Nebulosity and everything looked good and ready for image processing without a significant color abnormalities. :P

Re: Debayer setup for ASI071 MC Pro?

Thanks Sam. That was very helpful. I came up with this Demosaic Setup: I shot into a white piece of paper set closely in front of the camera without a lens. It was lit only by window daylight (~5500K) with the overhead lights turned off so there was no mixed lighting. In Nebulosity, I then adjusted ...

Re: Cannot Debayer images

Hi Vince, I had the same problem when I had the 071. I finally figured out that I needed to perform demosaic prior to align and combine since the align and combine process shifts each image a bit. Ben PS- I'm new to all of this so take what I say with a grain of salt. With the new Pro version I'm st...
