Ekos Dark Library problem

Ekos Dark Library problem was created by danoz

Hi there!

New user and so far having fun setting up Pi with Astroberry Server.
I'm trying to load the dark library; but no matter how many times I try or maybe I'm doing something obviously wrong I can't select a Dark folder via Ekos/Settings/Dark Library.
It just opens a file viewr but doesn't let me choose it. It's just a static file viewer.
Am I doing something wrong?

Also; curious if this has to be done on a local instance; or can be done from the server side to be applied to captures?

Thanks !

Have you shot darks yet? I was confused by this at first myself because I didn't realize you can't load a dark library into it. When you first capture an image it will ask if the camera has a shutter, then it will shoot a single dark image. It does this for both the main camera and the guide camera. The darks gets added into the library into the folder that is set in that area.

Thanks for the response;

Yes I have subtraction frames from another system. I was trying to load these in manually to be used rather than have to go through the whole process of taking them in Ekos in order for them to be available to use

This appears to be a limitation or an intention for some reason ?

Right...This library is only for the darks created by EKOS automatically when you first use your cameras, or change an exposure setting.
