When using ASICAP and my ASI183MM Pro to shoot videos of the moon I run into this issue.
Both PIPP and Autostakkert autodetect the videos as having a bayer RGGB format instead of mono.
Here I attach some examples of this:
This has caused me problems when having the manually choose to process videos as monochrome or colour frames input on PIPP. If I choose monochrome input then the final result introduces fake colour into the images with random blue and red pixels. If I choose colour input then it is fully greyscale (as I would expect from a mono camera), but the image sharpness is much worse! Can someone clarify with me whether a raw frame from a mono camera is treated as a monochrome or colour frame for the purposes of processing?
I dont know if I explained this very well. All I know is that I expected the software to detect the videos as mono but they think it has a bayer pattern...
Thank you in advance,
This is from a document about .SER format descriptions. See here

Based off of that information should I not expect to see the colour ID of my mono files as 0 ?
PIPP and also .SER Player read the files as having colour ID 8.
Is there any way to modify a .SER file via a config or something so I can try changing to value to 0 see if that fixes the problem?
