Description

Yep, yet another OSC data based image from the IAS Observatory Hakos, Namibia. ;-)

Meanwhile I started using PixInsight's new Weighted Batch PreProcessor (WBPP), with the option to split the R, G, B channels in the Debayer process and align / integrate the channels separately. This really improves image quality with OSC and WBPP takes care of the otherwise tedious manual process.
