You need to get DSS to debayer them. Look for the Raw/FITS DDP setting option on the left hand menu.

thanks ken
i have opened that menu but it says nothing regarding debayering
it is clicked on bilinear interpolation?

QHY cameras produce a FITS file when saving an image.

So you need to setup the camera in the FITS tab as attached, find a camera with the correct bayer pattern.
I use a QHY12 for taking images but use the QHY8 setting for DSS to get the correct bayer pattern.

(Your QHY10 should use the QHY8 setup, the same as mine.)

Cheers
Bill
