Title: FITS/FTS images from DSS not working in PI
Post by: gunny on 2014 September 22 06:14:31
    Hello to all,

    I'm a newbie to PI using the trial version, but have done some incredible restoration to old images that I have captured in the past.  Currently, I'm having problems transferring mono stacked images from Deep Sky Stacker after stacking and registering the raw fits data of darks, bias, flats, and lum, r,g,b. 

    I am using mono images with FITS format b4 processing with DSS.  Things go smoothly in DSS ( saved as 32 bit interger in dss), but the header information indicates FTS instead of FITS.  When that format is feed into PI everything goes well until you get to the Channel Combination routine.  When you try to enter the separate mono RGB data into the separate RGB data fields of Channel Combination, you get the message "no compatible image."

   Thanks for  any help that you can provide............Gunny

Convert in PI the RGB mono Images to GrayScale. Channel Combination wants gray Images as Input not RGB.
Use the process ConverToGrayscale
