DeepSkyStacker opening lights as .jpeg

Question

Hi,

Absolute newbie here - just getting my head around using Backyardeos - fantastic software for someone like me just starting out (massive learning curve) and will be getting the premium version once trial runs out but I have an issue whereby DSS opens my lights as .jpeg (all Darks, Bias and Flats open as RAW).

My workround is having to delete all .jpeg files in Backyardeos folder so only the Raw files are left, is there a way to tell Backyardeos to autosave .jpeg and RAW files in different folders - when importing files into DSS I select to pick only RAW files but it still elects to pick the .jpeg files on the lights only - OK what am I doing wrong here - other than that both sets of software works seamlessly

You can easily set BYE to collect ONLY the RAW files.  There really is no need for creation of JPG versions of the Initial Exposures - all current PCs are capable of parsing CR2 (and now CR3) files on-the-fly.  And until after Stacking, these files aren't really meant for Public Consumption.

You can also always use the File Manager Sort-by-Extension functionality...

I have a couple of suggestions...

1) Go to the Settings and change the image capture quality from RAW+JPG to RAW.

2) Move the JPG image files to a separate folder manually before trying to stack the RAWs with DSS.

3) Ask the DSS owners how to ignore the JPG files.

Thanks - that will sort it - most appreciated
