The parameter -update will copy the source image with the solution added to header to the same /tmp/solution. It will take some additional time. Is that required or was it just for testing?
The binning 4x4 is too much (for ASTAP) with your 3354x2529 sensor. ASTAP works best with images with a resolution between 1.5 MP and 8MP or image height between 1000 and 2500 pixels. For your setting I would recommend either binning 2x2 or binning 1x1. An exposure of 4 seconds is fine.
Clear skies, Han

It seems -update flag was checked by default in Ekos options, but works fine without too. But WOW how fast it is, almost instant on my quad core Atom, very well done! My offline Astrometry.net config and catalog set is quite optimized too and not too slow, but I think I'll definitely switch.
