DBE and Harry's Astro Shed
« on: 2016 December 13 15:18:47 »

Just a simple question here.  It concerns the tutorials produced by Harry's Astro Shed and in particular concerns  DBE.

The DBE tutorial finishes with the original image covered in little 'x's  and a new image which I guess is the product of running DBE. But how do you get the result of that run back unto the original.

In other words,  when you are finished running DBE do you forget the original image that you have been working on and therefor stay with the new image?  Or do you copy one image unto the other??

I know I am making this confusing when I shouldn't.  But would like to know how one properly finishes DBE.  It will put my mind more at ease.

by default DBE produces a new image with the background subtracted out, but it won't dp that unless you set the mode to subtraction or division (99% of the time you want subtraction). DBE does have an option to replace the target image if you want but i think most people don't use that feature.

I have the config set to 'subtract'.  Does that mean that the image that is produced IS the finished image?
Or do I still have to copy it over the original etc. etc..

You can just use the new image created by DBE as the starting point for further processing.
