Hello,

  I'm reviewing APP's capabilities but haven't been able to determine if it can remove blooms from a NABG camera using the KAF-3200 CCD. The closest I have seen is the option to remove hot pixel columns, but a bloom likely would not fit in that category. 

Thank You,

Mike

Could you post a screenshot so I know for sure what you mean with bloom? 😉 (to clarify, just so I know for sure we're talking about the same thing)

Ah excellent, thank you. Yes that is something APP can't really do at the moment. But Mabula is working hard to add a feature for that as this is also an issue we want APP to solve on some instruments from iTelescope.

OK..that's understandable. In the meantime would I be able to calibrate & remove the blooms (I am using CCDStack), save the calibrated frames then import them into APP to continue the processing?

 

Thank You,

Mike

I don't have experience for that myself, but what I would do is to calibrate the frames in APP, save the calibrated frames (down on the calibration tab) and then process it through something like CCDStack. However, it will depend on how that software is saving the results again. I've seen quite some software not properly handling fits headers, which can be problematic when you want to continue in APP again. If possible I would save the results in CCDstack and make the integration again in APP.
