MD vs MDF

Hello,

 

when I try to load my flats with a MD file as a MasterDarkFlat (so same gain/temp/exposure as the flats) APP gives a error message that it can only calibrate with a dark with the same gain/temp/exposure.... However my MD is the same gain/temp/exp as the flats, so why can't I load them as a MDF? Does APP use a different algorithm for the MDF than for the MD? Or is there a way to use the same files?

 

Cheers,

Michel

A masterdark with the exposure length of a flat seems odd, flats are usually taken at about a second of exposure time, I guess you don’t need a MD that short? It should be possible to use as masterdarkflat, did you load them as dark flats?

@vincent-mod

my flats are 3sec (with flat panel). And I do have masterdarks with 3 secs. I did try to load it as a MDF but it will put it in the MasterDark folder instead.
