Using the Subframe Selector PCL Module
« on: 2018 July 25 10:03:03 »
I've read through all the postings and downloaded as well as installed the module. Fantastic results but one thing I've always been confused about. Is there a difference in using calibrated vs raw images? At this point I've been measuring all raw fits files. Should I calibrate all images and then run them? Sorry for the simple question but the answer escapes me.

"Measurements are typically most accurate on calibrated but unregistered subframes."

Well there you go. Thanks and somehow I must have skipped that section. I'll reread again but thank you for the heads up.
