This is my first attempt at not binning the color. I think from here on out, I will go un-binned! I think it produces a better result and allows me to degrade the resolution of the image for color if I want to. The color in the image is a bit noisy, but I am going back for more data. I find that my Moravian has a ratio of somewhere around 1R 1.3G 2.3B. I am interested in knowing what others are experiencing.

Merry Christmas!
