i've been using an ML50100 camera recently and i'm having trouble processing the frames because of this one bright column in the CCD that i can't seem to process away.
normally i have problems with dark columns, and i use pixinsight cosmetic correction to handle them, but this a bright column, and an application of cosmetic correction seem to have no effect on it.
i've tried to run ImageIntegration with various types of combination routines (average, median, maximum, minimum) but none of them seem to help. the bright column is present on all frames, independent of filter used and it is present in the same numbered column on all frames, so i'm very confident it's a CCD issue.
has anyone run into this kind of CCD problem before? any ideas?
here is a single frame:
here is the image after stacking with ImageIntegration:
