I seem to have a lot of noise or amp glow (or both) in my guide camera exposures. I like the idea of the "Subtract Dark Frame" checkbox in the Guide Module, but I continually get a "No suitable dark frames or defect maps found. Please run the Dark Library wizard in Capture module" message in the status box when I do. I suspect it's because the dark library I created for this non-cooled camera doesn't have a listed temperature for the dark masters (snapshot below), so Ekos cannot find a suitable dark frame.
Unless I'm missing something for creating a dark library for a non-cooled camera, I think Ekos needs an additional flag to NOT select a master dark based on temp, or allow me to specify a temp for the dark frame, or maybe even extract a valid temp from a temp sensor (like the EAF or something). Extracting the sensor temp from my main cooled camera would be a mistake because the guide camera would/should be close to ambient.
Yes, it certainly is/was. There is something strange going on. I changed the Guider and Via pull-down menus a few times and it started working. Seems there is something that's not loaded up correctly on initial startup? I tried disconnecting and reconnecting, etc. Working now - thanks.
