New processing technique using T3 in RAW (black & white) acquisition mode. Process flow: pre-process in B&W (apply darks, flats, bias); batch convert to color (Bayer mosaic); stack; background color correct (white balance); stretch / saturation /etc.; to Raw Therapy for finishing. More subs to be added as this evolves.
