The ROI (Both SQM and ADU) defines a region of interest for two purposes:

SQM - This is the region where stars are detected and sky quality is calculated.
ADU - This is the region which is used to measure the amount of exposure and to modify the exposure time for future exposures to reach the requested ADU size.

x1,y1 are the co-ordinates of the top-left (with 0,0 being the top-left of the image)
x2,y2 are the co-ordinates of the bottom-right (with 1280,960 on the ASI120MC being the bottom-right of the image).

The main page in github has some description of the settings in the config file.

github.com/aaronwmorris/indi-allsky/#configuration

I am reading between the lines, but it may be possible you might not be restarting the software when making settings changes. Some of the settings, like gain, will not take complete effect until you fully restart the software.

Double check you have the latitude and longitude set correctly. Also, verify the timezone on your system is correct.

Thanks! Yes You're right i forgot to restart the software. :) Lat/long and timezone is correct, software seems to be working fine. Last night captures are ok, only on few images the darks were not used, so i think i need to redo the darks creating again.

Another question: where and how can i change the main login? Factory is admin/secret, but i want to change it to my own.

Another question.
After the last night i see that Keogram and timelapse is created successfully for day and night separately. But i cannot find the Stratrails image. I cannot see any option where it could be disabled or enabled. How can i enable it?

Here the night timelapse created by indi-allsky. I think there should be some parameters to change, but not sure what. What i see:
1. Some images are not corrected by dark-frames
2. Flickering, no smooth gain change, some images are more brighter than the image before or after. So its like its flickering.
Here the video:
Youtube Timelapse 2022.06.11. night
What should i do, or change?
Thanks!!

There is some specific configuration required for the ASI120 cameras.
Issue is that sometimes indi switches from 16-bit to 8-bit, because the camera issued an error during an acquisition (this can also affect your darks, as no suitable darks can be found for 8-bit, if you have your darks in 16-bit).

Look at the settings detailed here:

github.com/aaronwmorris/indi-allsky/wiki...20MC-S-Camera-Issues

This might fix both your issues.

Yeah, thats where I put mine, find the best result are running monochrome with this camera.
Hope to upgrade to the better one (asi178mm?).
But hey, it is an allsky so just a side project for me, for when my latitude doesn't let me do the real nice stuff...

I think i'll change to the RPI HQ cam (12,3MP Sony IMX477) with a 1,56mm fisheye lens (from Aliexpress). Have seen great results with this combo.
