I have an Altair Astro 183C (Sony CMOS) camera. Please can you lead me gently into workflow required to process and debayer, and stack RAW frames from this camera?

I like the layout of APP and if I can understand enough of it I will buy a copy! Thanks..

So you can follow the tabs from 0 to 9 basically on the left. You load in your data in tab 1, lights and calibration frames and keep all settings like they are for now. Then you press integrate in tab 6. See how far you get with that and post back, happy to help.

Thank you for your patience Vincent! I understand this, but am not sure how to describe the Bayer matrix to the software - or does it recognise it automatically? Is it neccessary to do BIAS frames for CMOS ?  Thanks

Yes I would advise to use them, some sensors have issues with short exposed bias frames though. It might detect the sensor automatically, just try it out and see, if not and the frames display as grey, you can go to tab 0 and select "Force CFA". You then remove the lights already loaded and reload them and it should work.
