    Question ASI 294 MC Pro and DSS



    Hi All,

    I recently got an asi 294 mc pro. I tested it out briefly do to clouds. Howvere I did 5 min subs at 180 gain and then used the generic debayer specified by zwo in DSS rggb. However my images color seems off, they look green after the final image is stacked. Anyone have this happen and know how to correct for it?

    Thanks.

    Thomas

    Hi Thomas,

    What software did you use to capture with?

    My buddy and I used his 294MC Pro this past Saturday and the resulting images do have a bit of a teal cast to them. We were using SharpCap, gain of 200. I suspect a tweak of the white balance in SharpCap may be in order.

    The Bayer matrix for the 294 is indeed RGGB so you are definitely correct on that count with regards to DSS.

    Here are the images from our session, and keep in mind I'm not especially versed in post-processing: 9 March 2019, Flapping In The Wind

    Thomas - not sure with the 294, haven't used it yet, but I'd check the color balance.
    You should see the shots of the time I smurfed Jupiter with the ASI224.
    Moving on.......

    I find that my light pollution gives my images a muddy brown tint using a DSLR.
    I have to process that nasty colour out and then work on the rest of the image.
    Fortunately Startools does a good job of removing gradients in one easy step.

    Not sure this is your problem but it is worth mentioning.
