Jasem,
Yes I agree with you, I dont think EKOS should get too complex. I think it should be just data-acquisition only. Data reduction should be a different application. There are lots out there. I use astropy's ccdproc for calibration (bias,flat,dark correction) and photutils for photometry. Although in the video above the graph was created with astroimagej.....
The EKOS shutdown script triggers my data reduction pipeline and works well. I think its better to get ekos to integrate with something else rather than build in photometric features into it.

The scheduler is awesome!!! It waited till the correct time, opened the roof, unparked scope, took 200 images, then parked scope &closed the roof while I was sleeping.

Having critters that want to eat you is something I never have to worry about here in Ireland :-) Worst thing that happened me is a hedgehog scaring the life out of me one night. They make weird noises and can move pretty fast!!!

I can only imagine what the skies are like in Uganda. Must be fantastic.

Once you get comfortable with EKOS and everything is running smoothly you can leave it running and go to bed :-) I do this regularly now and It parks the scope and closes the roof when finished. I even get it to send me an SMS when done.
