Can not calibrate Images captured with EKOS (stellarmate) in Pixinsight? #36956
From your previous post I understand that the FITS header shows 2750x2200. But in the PI console upon importing the image PixInsight reads 1 px less in each dimension. That is also the dimension listed on the ATIK website.
If the ACTUAL pixel COUNT (not FITS header) shows 2750x2200 then the information on the ATIK website must either be 1) wrong, or 2) the resolution was rounded up to the next number that was divisible by 2, or 3) the driver that PI reads out states the wrong value in the console (as does the website), or 4) PI entered the value provided to it by ATIK into the database it uses for its calculations and disregards the FITS header AND the actual pixel count.
Looks like that cannot be solved without input from ATIK. You need confirmation of what the actual pixel count of the sensor really is.

I can view the image just fine but then when I try to calibrate the images I get: *** Error: Incompatible image geometry
Can someone please give me some directions on what to do? Am I missing something?

This is NOT PixInsight error. It has been discussed on PixInsight forum and the issue is for sure related to actual geometry written to a FITS.
There is full consistency between actual image geometry and FITS header, however there is no consistency at all between actual image geometry and CCD specs on ATIK site.
Does anybody here use ATIK's windows software so we can confirm image geometry using native application? I don't even have a windows machine to try it on.

I have not experienced it on my last session last Sunday. I'm on the nightly builds, although I have not updated in the last 10 days or so. I only update when I come across serious know issues. This prevents me from running into new issues.
I also keep a backup image available so I can always go back if I run into issues.

This is probably the fix for this issue that is the cause for your problem.
In the solution Jasem say:
What changed in the driver is that it now strictly obeys that width % 8 must be zero
If I take the number for your camera:
- it start with a size of 5496, corresponding to width max.
- you ask for bin 4x4 : 5496/4 = 1374
- but 1374/8 = 171.75 , to respect the condition "width % 8 must be zero" it set the width to 171*8 = 1368
- Indi size are always unbinned so it is set to 1368*4 = 5472
- when you return to bin 1x1 it keep this size of 5472 making your new images not compatible with the first series.

You may be absolutely right. You can close my issue in mantis, I had to wait if Jasem fixes this driver.
By the way, this binning issue does not happen with EKOS as client. EKOS seems to handle it different.

Maybe Ekos do a CCD_FRAME_RESET to return to bin 1x1.
I not do that because one may want to change from bin 4x4 to 1x1 without changing the ROI that is set. If this cause the issue I can reconsider that.
