Bonjour

When importing RAWs from my Olympus E-PL6, the imported FITS also have only 12 bit resolution. Well, yes, my Olympus has a 12 bit sensor. But when processing a sequence of pictures the resulting stacked picture also has roughly 12 bit resolution. OK, I could have used "Sum stacking", but I really wanted to use "Average stacking with rejection".

Would it be possible to scale the pictures at import? E.g. FITS created by Kstars/Ekos from a 12 bit camera are also scaled to 16 bit.

Kind Regards and Clear Skies

Doing a histogram transfer function at the end of the process will normalize to 16bits.

I will work on this issue for the next release: https://gitlab.com/free-astro/siril/issues/310

At the end of which process? Importing, Pre-Processing?

Thanks

The normalization to 16bit has been added to Siril and will be available in the next version.

I see this issue too. I can average 100 Canon CR2 files and still effectively have a 14-bit image in a 16-bit wrapper.

In your final answer - just to be clear on the meaning,  I am assuming that the ideal scenario would be to have a 32-bit image but, if you are restricting it to 16-bit, maybe a 32-bit accumulator that is then scaled back to 16 bit for the file output.  I really hope you do not mean that you scale the 14-bit image to 16-bit. Simply multiplying a 14-bit result by 16 does not improve the tonal resolution at all.

Of course it does if you scale each image before stacking.
