AstroPixelProcessor & ASIair (FITS vs native DSLR formats)
I have a newbie question and hope someone can assist…
I am using a DSLR with an ASIair Plus and have a question about file formats.
I have the ASIair set up to save one copy to its internal storage and one to my DSLR’s SD card. The copy saved to the ASIair is FITS format and the copy saved to my (Nikon) camera is NEF format.
I use Astro Pixel Processor to stack and calibrate my images. Are both the NEF and FITS versions essentially the same or does one have more data/detail. In other words, what are the pros and cons (if any) to using one over the other.
Thanks for any guidance and recommendations. 🙂
@iseidman That probably is more a question for the ZWO forum that for here. Having said that, in my experience with Canon cameras, there is no difference in quality nor in meta-data between CR2 and FITS files. I don't see a reason why this would be different for NEF files.
