My DSS stacks have been coming out with some strange histogram results.  These stacked results are also very overdeveloped as compared to the individual subs.  Here are the camera settings, which outside of the gain=110 and the exposure time of 2 min are all at default, I believe.  Then the histogram results are shown.  I have tried numerous settings, and tried with no calibration files, but getting the same result.  Where did I go wrong?

I’ve never used DSS but looking through your settings the only thing that jumps out is the color space. Is this set in the driver or is this a setting in DSS? If it’s in the driver, I’ve only ever used raw 16 as the output type. Does that setting give you a color image right off the camera or is it gray? If the software isn’t properly debayering the image you can get some funky results. Your camera uses a RGGB cfa so that also needs to be set correctly.

Like I said, I’ve never used that software so I’m not sure I can be of much help but I noticed that you posted this a couple days ago and had no responses so I figured I’d jump in and at least give you something to look at. Hopefully someone will jump in here with a more informative answer. Good luck!
