image sizes in pixinsight

Recommended Posts

Hi, I’m not sure if this is the correct forum but maybe someone can help. I’m using a Zwo 1600 mm cool with a skywatcher 200p. When I open my images in pixinsight, the size of my lights and darks are 2328 x 1760 while my flats and bias are 4656 x 3520. Because of this I cannot calibrate them, (geometry problem). I’ll try the Pixinsight forum as well but I’m guessing they’ll say, “it’s a SGpro problem”!!!
If anyone else has experienced this, any help would be wonderful.
Kind regards,
Phil

The simplest answer would be that you have binned the lights and darks 2x2 and didn't bin the flats and bias frames?

Sounds odd.  I use APT to operate that very same camera.  The pics come out the same full rez for every pic I ever took, but I set binning to 1x1 in APT.   Definitely worth a check

 

 

If you have loads of very good subs that you'd rather not lose, perhaps you could resize them in PI so they match?  2360x1780 is still quite hi resolution compared to most computer screens...

Only been doing this for a couple of years now and have had and still have plenty of these moments myself! Not sure what I would do without the info that's available over the internet...
