    I am planning on using Astrophotography Tool(APT) to control my STF-8300C single-shot camera. In order to preview single-shot color images using APT, it is necessary to specify a Bayer filter. The available options in APT are RGGB, GRBG, GBRG, BGGR, and CMYG. Which of these filters will correctly de-Bayer an image taken with my STF-8300C camera?

    Probably RGGB. However it's possible that the matrix might be misaligned (it's a thing with CCDs) so it could be RGGB, GRBG, GBRG, or BGGR. Try each of them until the color looks correct...

    Thanks, Doug. I empirically determined that for my STF-8300C, the correct filter is BGGR based on correct color decoding of the H-alpha region of M8.
