Hi,

I have and Alpy 600 and use Demetra to aquire my images and do the data reduction. I've decided to stick my neck out and have ordered a Star'Ex kit to do high resolution spectroscopy. I was able to get familar with Demetra even though I not very computer literate. I'm now practicing SpecINTI Edito- the data reduction part is familiar, but how do you capture the images- object bias frames, etc. Can I use Demetra or use my camera aquistion? 

Thanks

Dick

I can't see any reason why you should not be able to use any program to acquire the images as long as the files follow the file naming system and have the basic information in the fits header that the spectrum reduction program needs. For example I use the ATIK Artemis program that came with my cameras with ISIS

The SpecInt file naming convention and how to set up SpecInti to find the files it needs is described in paragraph 7.1 here where there is also an example set to download.

If you make sure your image files and folders follow the same setup you should be good to go
