    Thanks Remmy,
    can you please discuss a bit about the debayer settings - maybe in another thread about the QHY8L so I don't hijack your thread?

    Cropped version - gets rid of the worst vignetting as well. I used 3 darks and 10 bias frames for this, but no flats. Still having trouble with flats. My to do list includes making a lightbox.

    Instead of buying an expensive lightbox, try taking a brand new white cotton t-shirt and stretch it over the OTA and secure it with a rubber band. Point it at a bright evenly lit wall (most people have a white wall somewhere). See if that helps with you flats
