I am trying to understand why when I open an image as pure raw (brings it in as gray) measures significantly lower "maximum" values versus opening it as a regular Demosaiced (RBG) raw.
It is supposed to be a saturated image, which opening it as regular raw shows to be true. But as a Pure Raw (gray) it's maximum value is much less.
Changing the number from 16K to 64K in the Maximum ADU seems to only affect Full well Capacity and Dynamic Range numbers that are generated.
My goals is trying to:
1. Use BasicCCDParameters to get my read noise and gain. Part of that process is inputting Maximum ADU for my DSLR (5D Mark III in this case). hence I was making an overexposed image
2. Use the data to measure my Signal Level as talked about in this thread https://www.cloudyni...-in-pixinsight/
