    Default Article on whether or not to bin data



    This is a very helpful article that clarified what has been to me a source of confusion when imaging.

    As Sara said it depends on your image scale. Sara is working with a very small image scale, so binning may make sense to her. Her scale goes from 0.47 to 0.94.
    On my system, my image scale is already 1.1, so if I bin it will go to 2.2. I found that I don't like the decrease in resolution.

    Very interesting David and thanks for sharing here. Like Stuart, my image scale is also 1.1, so I am not sure if binning is a win win for my. I will try it sometime just to test it out. Now I understand it better.

    Thanks,
    Jim
