Bayer setting automatic

I found an option in Deep Sky Stacker that allows the adjustment of the bayer filter settings. I was doing some testing with images from the astrophotography workshop. It was obvious that some cameras are very different.

I asked Steve if he knew about this setting. He shot his Veil images with a Canon 450D (aka Rebel XSi). Curiously, this is not listed in DSS. But there were dozens of other Canons. So I chose a 350D instead, assuming the microfilter layout was the same.

Steve said that he found the software smart enough to figure the Bayer order on it's own. He shared that Nebulosity and PixInsight have these settings but typically do not require modification.
