I just purchased my first mono camera (ASI1600MM) and am determining what calibration files I need for the imaging I will be doing. It is a cooled camera so I won't be worrying about temperature. Can anyone tell me if I'm on the right track in creating the following calibration files?

 

For LRGB Imaging 

Bias  100    MasterBias

Flat     40    MasterFlat_Lum

Flat     40    MasterFlat_Blue

Flat     40    MasterFlat_Red

Flat     40    MasterFlat_Green

Dark   40    MasterDark_60

Dark   40    MasterDark_120

Dark   40    MasterDark_300

 

For Narrowband Imaging

Flat  40   MasterFlat_OIII
Flat  40   MasterFlat_SII
Flat  40   MasterFlat_Ha

Bias and Darks are the same as those for LRBG Imaging. All calibration files will be used for Gain 139 and Offset 21 settings.

 

Thanks for any suggestions!

Bob

People will vary.  Your choices are good ones.

The recommendation for the ASI1600mm is to use dark flats and not bias frames
