FYI,

I just found that PixInsight's plate solve routine puts in XPIXSZ & YPIXSZ upon a successful solve

OK.. I think I have done it correctly - 1st time I've ever done it...

Please check & let me know

Pinpoint, MaxPoint & MaximDL (in the past)

I found Maxim has documented the FITS keywords it uses, for example

Apologies - misread the "index files" bit....

GitHub did experience some issues yesterday (or maybe day before?)

- try it again...

As a quick follow-up, this is the fudge I made on my setup :

file : libindi/libs/indibase/indiccd.cpp

// XPIXSZ and YPIXSZ are logical sizes including the binning factor
    double xpixsz = pixSize1 * targetChip->getBinX();
    double ypixsz = pixSize2 * targetChip->getBinY();
    fits_update_key_dbl(fptr, "XPIXSZ", xpixsz, 6, "physical X dimension of the sensor's pixels in microns. Includes binning", &status);
    fits_update_key_dbl(fptr, "YPIXSZ", ypixsz, 6, "physical Y dimension of the sensor's pixels in microns. Includes binning", &status);

Phil Shepherd created a new topic ' FITS keywords for pixel size of CCD' in the forum. 4 weeks ago

I have been chatting to Peter from CloudMakers as I have been using his Atik CCD driver in my INDI setup on an oDroid.

I managed a proper run with it all on Monday night & have only just started to look in detail at the test images I took.

I am use to Pinpoint when solving FITS images & have used Maxim in the past - both of these use XPIXSZ & YPIXSZ for the pixel size. This has allowed the focal length to be calculated along with the solve. INDI uses PIXSIZE1 & PIXSIZE2

What I also notice is happening is, when I binned the image x4, the PIXSIZE1 & 2 remain at 6um's which I presume is normal, and XBINNING/YBINNING is 4...

Problem is, none of my external programs use PIXSIZE1 & 2.

I realise that the FITS "standard" is almost anything but a standard with all the extensions, but would like to get clarity here about this.

For me, XPIXSZ & YPIXSZ would show the "logical" size.... i.e. x1 binning = 6um, x4 binning = 24um, etc... This would be consistent with at least some of the other programs I use.

LOL - yep... 1/2 will complain....

TBH, Peter... I agree with you that any non-system stuff ought to go into /usr/local - I have made the argument at work too & most people tend to agree there....

Indeed I have since created a symbolic link as hindsight made me change it...

I suppose Jasem could make a call as to which should be the standard place?

Yep - I had the same issue... copying the xml file, as per your post, to where the rest were sorted the issue...

Did you notify CloudMakers of the issue? Peter is a regular poster on here...

Having just updated my ODroid to the latest ubuntu, I seem to have the same problem

I have added th ejpeg 6.2 with
sudo apt-get install libjpeg62
&
sudo apt-get install libjpeg62-dev

When I try to run the V1.29 of the atik driver (indi_atik_ccd), I get :

indi_atik_ccd: /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libjpeg.so.62: version `LIBJPEGTURBO_6.2' not found (required by indi_atik_ccd)
