    Hi,
    After turning on my SBIG, it can grab B/W pictures. When I click "Single-shot color", the color process" is in gray color, can not go forward.
    Thank you for your advice,

    When you take an image in CCDOps, it will show as a gray image.
    To show it in color, you need to use the Single Shot Color Process command.
    Have you tried changing the X/Y Offset values?

    Hi, Colin,
    Thank you for your reply.
    I did go through those steps you said. It seems that it is the procedure for manually adding color by myself.
    I have a SIB STF-8300C, I suppose I will get a color image naturally, but not artificial. Hope you can understand that I am a newcomer in color-cool CCD imaging.
