Hi guys,

It's great to see my old device supported: Color Meade Deep Sky Imager I. I'm trying to get color info out of this 18 year-old device but only getting red. Reading here on the forum that there was an effort 6 years ago to support this device. I am just wondering if the debayering works?
Cheers,Jurgen

Debayering the images in kfitsviewer is not supported since the CCD for the DSI Color (ICX254AK) uses a complementary color filter array rather than the "standard" RGGB CFA. The CMYG CFA was used on some of these older cameras but is not really used anymore.

I don't have pixinsight, but a little searching seems to indicate that it can debayer these images.

No problemo, I don't want to mess with the CMYG debayering then. Thanks for the insight!
