Hi all.
Yesterday I updated my raspberry and I fount the new KStars 3.5.3.
I use a setup with a DMK 618 mono as guide camera. I tried to build the dark library using the new tool, but I noticed that a obtain a master dark that is vertically splitted. One side of it is more brigthness than the other side in each exposition rate.
I dot know if it is a problem in the dark module or if it is related to the DMK's driver, or only in the computes of the master dark.

I have to try to do the same procedure using the QHY183M as guide camera

Hmmm check the individual frames as they were captured, did they show any of this?

Single dark frame are good, none of they are wrong. It is visible only in the master dark and when it is applied during the guide.
Actually I do not have nothing to show you, i will try again with the DMK and with the QHY183M later afte the sunset

The problem seems to be related to the DMK driver.
All seems to be ok if I use the QHY183M

If the individual frames do NOT show this, then it could be a KStars issue. But you're saying the individual frames also feature this issue? so INDI issue?
