Split colors APP 1.078
With version 1.078, when I load my R, G, and B images previously divided from my RGB color images with "split channels", APP cannot automatically recognize the R, G, B header, they are consider as mono only. I am forced to assign them manually.
Is this normal? Did I make a mistake?
Thank you in advance and have a good day.
When you split your channels, they will be mono indeed. That is because just R will be just R, it doesn't have GB to make up a normal 3 channel RGB image to display. But that is totally normal, if APP then recognizes it to be of the R channel, will depend on if the tag (R, G or B) is in the fits file, which I think it should be as you used APP to split the channels.
I thought the same thing but since my request I have tested with versions 1.075, 1.076, 1.077 and 1.078.
As long as the color images are not divided with version 1.078 the header tag automatically recognizes each R, G and B image correctly.
So I compared the header tag of 2 divided images one with version 1.077 and the other with version 1.078 to realize that the problem probably comes from the fact that in version 1.078 the keyword "FILT-1" is in error and that we should find the keyword "FILTER-1"
When do you think? Can this be corrected?
Thank you in advance and have a good day,
Mm, I have not had an issue with it as of yet, I'll ask Mabula if this might cause an issue somehow.
Ok, it is known and will be fixed in the next version. Thanks for reporting!
Thank you for the attention given to my request.
I am sure it will be appreciated by a majority of beginner to intermediate level amateur astronomers who use color CMOS / CCD cameras.
Great, with version 1.079 this bug is resolved.
Thank you and have a good day,
