Can Vespera acquire dark, flat and offset files?
No. Calibration images are entirely managed by our algorithms which, thanks to the combination of internal files and advanced defect clean-up algorithms, allow us to extract the quintessence of the signal without the need for additional shots.
Does STELLINA integrate dark, flat and offset files?
No. Flat would be complicated to manage because of the field derotator The bias (offset) is not necessarily necessary on recent sensors (more so than on our cameras, we found that it was impossible to control the behavior of the sensor below 0.5s) ...
Can we use any other manufacturer's filter on Vespera?
No it will not be possible to use existing filters, as Vespera will adapt its image processing and object suggestions, based on filters that will be used, by detecting the type of filter. Moreover, a full-aperture filter involves specific ...
How Vespera compensate for the lack of field derotator?
Vespera realizes unitary exposures of 10s. This is enough so that the field rotation is not visible on the raw images. Thus, the field rotation is compensated when stacking the images. Thanks to our image processing algorithms that take into account ...
How to take and use a dark?
Singularity allows its advanced users to make darks more easily. To get darks files, here is the procedure to follow. Step 1: Make sure that the Expert mode is activated. To know how to do it, check this article. Step 2: Launch an observation For ...
How to export TIFF files?
The TIFF format is a 16-bit file type without compression of the final image, editable steps already carried out, editable on processing software such as Photoshop. You will need a USB key connected to the Stellina for this manipulation. To export ...
