Atik Infinity / RGB images in FITs file saves
« Last post by warter on July 20, 2017, 05:52:02 PM »
I am sorry for this beginners questions.  I saved a stacked image of M51 as a FITS file and when I open it in Photoshop it is a grayscale image only.  Where is the RGB information saved or do I have to change a setting to save RGB information?  Thank you for the help.
I got similar issues when doing 360 vr video. I had the same solution.

Are you capturing RAW or Blended?  Blended is softer.

White clipping will also cause stars to look out of focus due to some degree of bloating as will too much stretching in postprocessing.

I've also found capturing subs and aligning and stacking them outside of the Infinity software can give better results.  It all depends upon sky conditions.

Another option is to to shoot several sessions at different exposures and do a high dynamic range merge in postprocessing.

Many, many options for processing for the best results...

3- and 4-Series Cameras / Atik414EXC with SharpCap
« Last post by donboysail on July 14, 2017, 08:02:31 PM »
I recently tried using my 414EXC with it's Ascom driver in the latest SharpCap.  The exposure needed for M13 was 15sec before  I could barely make it out.   In Artemis or Infinity software one exposure at 15sec is too much exposure.  Equipment was C8 @ f/5.37.

Any idea what the issue may be?

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm glad you're enjoying the new software. Anyways, the software currently only auto saves in FITS files as these files contain the additional information needed to replay through the data and this wouldn't be possible with the other files types. However, adding an option to also save in other file types is an interesting idea. I'll add it to the list.

Hi Manu,

Thank you for your message! Were working at the moment just with Atik 4-Series, as we need to do it step by step. Im sorry your camera is not supported by this software nowadays, I expect we can work on this in the future.

We'll keep you updated by our website and social media! Sorry for the bad news  :-\

Best regards,

Hi, when my Atik 383L connects to SGP or other capture software it is reporting an initial temperature of approx. -22degC and the cooling or warming functions do not work.

It has been working fine for months but now for some reason its reporting an incorrect CCD temperature.

I have tried reinstalling the drivers and changing/shortening the USB cable but to no avail.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
