Hello everybody!

I have a problem when I take videos with NEXIMAGE CCD. In all cases appear some dark lines that is very difficults to remove.
I have seen that it is possible to minimize them by adjusting the tuning, but not possible to eliminate them.

Could any one told to me if this is a normal effect?
How is the procedure to eliminate them?.

Thanks to all
I attached an image like example

I guess you are suffering from Newtons rings.
Two ways for cure
1. Tilting

2. Flat fielding

Yes, that looks like Newton's rings. I cured the ones in my system by purchasing a tilt-adjuster from OPT. If they aren't bad, flat fielding may work. You might play around trying to manually tilt the camera to see if you can get rid of them.

OOHHKEY Tapio!!!! Excellent!!! Thnaks very much!!.

I did not know that such problems exist.

So Them If I understund good, the problem is due to a difference of parallelism between the camera chip and the device of PST Them maybe I should check first the condition of setting between the diagonal & CCD.....

OK OK thanks very much by your usefull help!!

OK so them, I start trying moving the camera, them if I don´t eliminate it, I try with flat frames.

Thanks a lot!

Take care to ensure the camera is solidly mounted (droop-free), as even a miniscule variation from square (orthogonality) can introduce the "rings". As Tapio mentioned, a tilt adapter can help dial them out, if finessing the mounting alone does not do it.

My preference has always been to hone "front-end" techniques that improve the quality of the raw images, thus requiring the least amount of post-capture processing "magic".

But hey... a big part of what makes this stuff so much fun is the challenge (and sharing our notes)!
