Frame Type issue

Question

I am puzzled as to how the Frame Type works in the  Capture Plan section.

I just did a series of exposures all with the lens cap on to take a set of darks, set of dark-flats and set of bias frames,

They all were labeled as BIAS even though I changed the Frame Type as I entered each line.

 

Does BYE only allow one Frame Type per session?

 

Thanks,

Mike

Frame type is a function of the capture plan as a whole, it's not a function of each line.  You need to set the frame type, start the capture plan for that type.  When this is done set the frame type to something else and start that capture plan, etc.

This was discussed 3 years ago in the following thread:

Also, if you are shooting dark flats, bias frames are not really necessary. Easy to shoot, but not necessary. If your flats are short duration then there is very little noise so they can be calibrated with a master bias, but if you have a master dark flat, the master bias would not normally be used.

Rick,

Thanks for your reply and the link.

The reason for the bias as well as dark-flats is because I would use the dark-flats for the flats which are short duration (without using the bias). And the darks and bias used separately for the lights. I am more used to CCD imaging only getting back into DSLR use as I have recently mounted the Canon camera next to the telescope for wide shots. It's only after a number of years since I got BYE that I am now really starting to use it.

Regards, Mike
