I've been wanting to make the switch from using bias frames to using dark flats using my asi1600mm.

I've download the new BPP script....

 

https://www.tommasor...hpreprocessing/

 

One of the new features is a checkbox to use "Calibrate with flat darks only" 

My question is what tab do I load my dark flats into the new BPP?

Do I load them up under the Bias tab or the flat tab on BPP?

 

Also enjoying the weighting option when combining frames and the ability to save the script.

I tried this last night and I think I got it right. Load your master flat darks into the dark tab. Make sure “master dark” is checked and set the (I thin it’s called) tolerance to zero so it doesn’t lump any of your flat darks together into one exposure. It’s 10 by default and that will likely cause you problems.

Thank you. I ran it last night with the master flat darks under the bias tab. It ran without errors but I will try again tonight following your advice.
