record gain and offset values

Post by lpamm » Mon Oct 16, 2017 5:35 pm

I'm imaging with the ASI1600MM-C using SkyX and a Paramount MX+. Currently gain and offset values are not recorded in the FITS header generated for this camera, so I need to remember to add them manually to the AutoSave filename in SkyX. In addition to adding those values to the FITS header, it would be very helpful if the ZWO X2CameraDriver would allow them to be added to the ":x" options for filenames in the SkyX AutoSave menu.

Sorry for late reply, I have found way to meet your request, but now I'm away on leave, I'll back to work on November 30th and implement that feature by then.

Hopefully someone using windows can reply. I'm running SkyX on a mac so I can't test this.

Will this feature be added to all ASI drivers? I use the INDI driver with Ekos/Kstars. When I requested this feature on the INDI forum, Jasem directed me here.
