Thanks for your tests. It really helps.
As already said, I'm not an Ekos expert.
I think using live view for capture is a miss usage.
Live view uses a "stream manager". The INDI API says :
16bit frames are only supported in some recorders. You can send 16bit frames, but they will be downscaled to 8bit when necessary for streaming and recording purposes.
By default, the full image width and height are used for transmitting the data.
In my mind, live view is for :
- live FOV corrections
- fast manual focus
It's a kind of "fast preview".
Then, you program a shooting plan and start it.
Then you process all your fits images
Am I wrong Knro ?
For pure planetary imaging, a would use AstroDmx instead of Ekos.
I think Ekos is more "DSO imaging" oriented.
In live view, you have to toggle the "bayer button" to get the frames. I don't know why. I asked to Knro. Exposure time is also much shorter.
But you're right, live view needs more work.
Best regards !
