Hi,
As i understand, the dark library is created in order to use it in Focus, Guide and Align module. In those modules, using more than 60s has no sense.
With narrowband filters, i'm using 10s for focus and align.

If you want to take dark frames with more than 60s, use module Capture as usual.

Continuing to speaking with myself, i've just test this feature with simulator (CCD and focuser) and it works as expected.

@Jasem,
Wonder why it doesn't work with my focuser (Moonlight nightcrawler) ?

Hi,

I tried to capture flats for SII filter (flat focus position in focuser is set in filterwheel settings (see below), my focuser position was set to 0 (absolute position and the focuser is a NightCrawler)
 



I thought that as the position of focus is set, focuser will move to that position and then capture flat will start.
 

But when i launch the sequence, the focuser didn't move to the position and images are taken immediately in order to reach the ADU value I've set for capture.

Do i miss something ?
NB: I'm using last nightly build (ubuntu 20.04)

Choose the correct one from your list in indi (if you have multiple serial devices, you wil have a combo list), save your device settings and that's ok.
I have no more connection problems with my serial devices since it was implemented.

I don't know for the scan, sorry!

Hi,
I'm testing last nightly build under ubuntu for explicit temperature for focus. I'm testing this feature with a NightCrawler focuser and with an Pegasus UPB v2 with CCD Simulator (bad weather for the moment).
==> It's seems that temperature is no more exact in autofocus file in focuslogs:

date, time, position, temperature, filter, HFR, altitude
2021-05-14, 03:11:56, 17874, -1000000.0, LPR, 0.930, 52.9 ==> Focuser
2021-05-14, 03:17:52, 17465, -1000000.0, LPR, 0.951, 53.8 ==> UPB v2

Clear skies,
