Severe banding in Stellarmate 1.7.3!

Firstly I noticed horizontal patterns in the result after last imaging session. I checked darks - there were same patterns. But I didn't notice the same in my previous attempts. I tried to figure out the cause, probably cables or anything. But everything was the same. So I suspected the issue is stellarmate because NINA did have that issues with the same exposure and temperature

So I installed astroberry that I had. It was rather old version from spring. There were no such issues! (but it crashed a lot with my RisingCam IMX571). I tried CCDCiel - no issues. Then I upgraded astroberry and got banding both in kstars and ccdciel

So I installed old version of stellarmate 1.7.2 on another sdcard and did not have same issue. So I upgraded the same sdcard and got the issue. My conclusion that some update to stellarmate/indi causes banding on the same setup. It is not driver/sdk issue since they are of the same version

PS That's how I lost several days of my life and so rare imaging session.

For CCD simulator, just set the gain to 90 or something. There was a bug in the driver (that is not fixed in GIT) that might lead to this behavior.

For the banding, as I said it could be due to HGC/LGC settings perhaps? There are no changes to the INDI driver itself that would explain this and the SDK has not changed since you latest tested. I pushed an update to Toupbase drivers today to fix another issue, but you might want to check if this perhaps somehow improves your situation (unlikely).

As I have said, firstly I confirmed this with astroberry and ccd ciel (tried "summer" version and the latest). Then I installed old stellarmate version. Created a sequence, saved it, got the images, upgraded and updated, loaded sequence, got the images - issue appeared. Power cables, usb cables remained in the device, temperature - the same.

Here is a sub. Basically latest stellarmate is unusable.

And another one, but I think I've reported this crash earlier here on forum. Still reproducible
