Color camera FITS files from Astro Photography Tool
Does the metadata in the FITS files captured by Astro Photography Tool with a color OSC camera (in this case ASI294MC Pro) contain the information for APP to debayer automatically? Do I need to change the settings in Tab 0 RAW/FITS?
I also have an ASI294MC camera, and I'm using N.I.N.A. for capture. My understanding is that the resulting FITS files (whether using APT, SGP, or NINA) do not contain the information needed for APP to automatically recognize them as OSC images. It is easily corrected by checking "force Bayer/X-Trans CFA" in the 0) RAW/FITS tab. You can set pattern to "RGGB" or leave it on "supported" (which defaults to RGGB). Here is an earlier thread which helped me resolve this same issue: https://www.astropixelprocessor.com/community/main-forum/osc-cfa-question-2/
Thanks for the reply and the thread reference. In my search of the forum I had missed that thread's reference to APT.
