Hello all CN'ers!
I am just getting started and having watched a few YouTube videos on AP. I see the trials of setup and guiding control in detail, but very little have indicated on the naming of files captured from either DSLR or Cooled CCD/CMOS cameras. I know that there are Lights, Darks, Bias, and Flats which are taken at the time of capture or separately to best show the lens or telescope optics train characteristics. BUT, I don't know of the what, when, where, those files are transferred from storage to a computer for processing. Do the files coming from the cooled cameras come named? I know the DSLR are commonly named according to the file naming convention of the manufacturer. I presume the files are re-named by the author to indicate all the information so that they can be aligned, registered, and calibrated. True?
Sorry for the interruption to your normally scheduled viewing. :-)
