Hello
For anything under a second my metadata shows the exposure time as 1/10th which is a bit disconcerting when trying to verify your data . However when making test shots at a given FSTOP/ISO i can see the images are getting darker up until the point of 1/1000th.So the software is setting the exposure correctly up until this point.

When trying to make Bias frame @1/8000 I get a bright image so unsure what value it used to expose.It was brighter than the images i made at 1/10th?!

Am i to take it then that I must make these bias frames and possible Flat frames (which will also need a sub second exposure) externally to EKOS as found another post on here where knro stated that gphoto2 had minimum exposure time of 1/000th which matches my testing.
Just odd that the capture module gives you the opportunity to create calibration frames?!
What am i missing?

ILCE-7SM2 (Sony A7SII)


Thanks in advance

took the camera out of bulb mode (duh its all these late nights :) )

In ekos/gphoto i was till getting a 1/10th exposure from capture mod,then added CCD information to the jpb properties which then set a 1/8000th exposure ,metadata and all.

With an A7Riii it is saving "native" captures as a jpeg. Camera is 100% set as uncompressed RAW.Works ok with saving as a fits file
And it also works fine from the command line with gphoto2

My A7SII works fine either way so im prettry confident about how i have ekos set..
I have also set up and got working my canon camera but id really like to get RAW files to work on my A7RIII
