« Last post by STEVE333 on Today at 18:33 »
With the new version of PI the BatchDeBayer script is missing.

Is it still available?

Thanks John for the advise. I did ghet it to work but needed to change the Photometry settings not plate solving. I had to raise the  max limit to 20 from 12. and that seem to do the trick.

Then I get Error: Missing CFA source file path.

Just select your CFA pattern instead of Auto. It should work.

Hi,

Maybe this will help.... In PCC, reset to defaults then in Image Parameters ---> set the R.A. and Dec, Focal length, Pixel size and in Plate Solving Parameters >> check Force plate solving and Ignore existing metadata.

Look up

Hi,

After you run PCC or DBE or ABE the image will look perfect.  Some of my images start as blue or red or orange but after PCC it is all good. :)

Look up

Hi,

I tried a RangeSelection and the ColorMask and then Curves/Histogram/MMT which toned the color/brightness down a little ... but it still looks bad. 

I will just have to re-image on the next clear night ....

Thanks to all for their input.

Thank you Mark and Warren for your responses. Unfortunately I am still having the issue for some reason. I am debayering right after calibrating the light frames (with RGGB set for my camera, VNG demosaicing), then I run subframe selector, then star alignment (with generate drizzle data checked). After this I run image integration with the drizzle data files added so they're updated, and then try drizzle integration. Then I get Error: Missing CFA source file path. I am completely stumped as to what I am doing wrong, as I have followed all the steps written previously. It seems like somewhere in the mix it is not recognizing that they are CFA files? I don't know.

I notice from another thread that you are starting with raw FITS files from QHY247C.  Is this still the case?  The only thing I can think of is maybe the information about Bayer pattern "RGGB" is not being found by DrizzleIntegration for some reason or there is some other reason that DI is upset by working with raw FITS files.  For instance, I wonder if some header keyword needs to set within those files?

That doesn't look unusual for an RGB combination that hasn't had background neutralization done.
