I am using DFK 41 color camera.
Unfortunately, I cannot open my AVI files in any astrophoto software (Registax, Iris, Maxim DL): I always get an error message about AVI decompressor.
Got a solution ?

I sometimes get that as well and have to save the frames as bmps with Virtual Dub before I can process them. I'm using a monocamera.

Hi,

Try to stream in Y800, codec unspecified and uncheck the color function.

Then open in RegiStax v4 and choose the debayering modus. Play with the 4 options and take the one which represents the colors you saw.

Be careful not to stream over 1GB.

Hi Philippe,

Rainer is on the right way, but if you use "BY8" or "UYVY" video format, then use "RGB 24" instead of "Y800". If you use "Y800" videoformat for debayering the raw image data later, then "Y800" is absolute suitable.
Also download the latest version of Registax. Older versions are not able to read "Y800".

Hi,

As Stefan says that is also possible but be aware of the fact that those AVI files will be 3 times bigger then the ones made with Y800.

I would suggest play around with formats and codecs.

Thanks for all theses informations.
I tried with Y800 and Registax reads it without problems, but the pictures are in black and white. Is it possible to use Y800 and keep the colors?

Phlippe,

Yes, if you use Y800 video format and save Y800, then the RAW bayer data are saved. These can be transformed to colored RGB data.
