How to process .fit files

Postby JockyB » Wed Dec 27, 2017 9:42 pm

I recently requested an image from the ATEO telescope (found by accident whilst browsing) and have just received my images, 1x red, 1x blue, 1x green and 1x luminance. All .fit files. I can open them with Gimp (can't afford Photoshop etc) and am now wondering what to actually do with these files. Anyone know how to combine them to produce an image (never done this before) Complete noob at processing images.

Thanks in advance for any replies

BTW Merry Christmas, hope you all had a good one.
