Quote:John,Are you sure about that?, I've never used bias frames for my ST-8300 work and have managed quite well using only darks and flats (with darks for the flats as well).

Quote:Does a flat have to be taken at the same temperature as the light frames?
Quote:Then you can all see how I have done it
Quote:oops! forgot last thing... the original ST-8300 it is possible for light to leak inside the camera housing(this I verified with their tech support) and it is possible to get funny flats and darks4flats if the camera in lighted area - so now i just loosely wrap with tin foil (all but exhaust fan) for the few minutes it takes, or take them in dark during bad weather.
Quote:Does a flat have to be taken at the same temperature as the light frames? I don't think it does but wanted to check. Thanks...John
