I have an Titan colour CCD and I been using it to take images of Jupiter but I only seem to get Black and White images. The image is colour on the screen but get black  and white.

The B&W image is probably needs to be debayered.

The camera takes a B&W image through a special bayer matrix (just like most cameras) and the result is then coloured based on the B&W pixel value at the position of the bayer matrix - this is called debayering. The resulting debayered image is then colour.
