Do I leave the Ha filter in place while shooting the flats for my Ha imaging session? And should I expect the flats to be reddish due to the filter.

Yes, and yes. For shooting flats, you don't even want to change focus position.

Thank you for the quick reply. Been doing this for more than 2 years and finally broke down an got a Spike a Flats panel. Didn't do flats before, but realize to make that step up flats will be a must. I noted that the AV-Flats setting in camera control Backyard EOS doesn't work. I had to use 2 second exposures(bulb) to bring the red portion of the histogram to 1/2 in BYE. Just about to put everything into DSS and see how it turns out.
