yes, I've noticed it too:
it is 1391x1039 now, but it is not a deviation from the previous versions of Ekos and or Indilib. I have dark images captured by Ekos from 2014 that have the same 1391x1039 frame size. I had problems with the frame size being 1392x1040 when I captured flats using APT.

I use a Moonlite focusser on my Skywatcher Quatro 200mm F4 carbon.
There are mounting kits available fitting the exact positions of the cuts in the carbon tube.
My control unit is an Arduino with a Moonlite compatible driver that programmed using the equally named Arduino tool.
Also I had to add a stepper bridge.
