APP Always Picks Bin 2x2 for Registration Reference
My workflow for image capture is to capture LRGB with L=bin 1x1 and rgb=bin 2x2 for each. In every instance of image integration, APP selects a 2x2 R,G,or B, as the registration reference. I have to manually select a L 1x1 in order to use a bin 1x1 image as reference. If I allow a bin 2x2 as reference, the L is scaled down and the resulting image is blocky with square stars. I get nice round stars after manually selecting L bin 1x1 as reference. Is there a setting in APP to force use of bin 1x1 as the reference frame ?
I don't think there is a way to do this automatically, I'll check with Mabula maybe a specific weights setting might work, but otherwise he might need an additional option for this.
Ok, also this is something that will be fixed, probably in the next stable release of 1.076, not in the beta of 1.076 yet.
