The first thing I did when I started with PixInsight was to go to these tutorials:

www.lightvortexastronomy.com/tutorials.html

They explain a LOT about image processing and also about the shooting process. You’ll need bias, dark and flat frames and especially the Pre-Processing tutorial very well explains how to process all the images and come to a good looking result.

Wouter van Reeven replied to the topic 'INDI ASI Driver Bug causes false binned images' in the forum. yesterday

If I understand correctly then the current implementation sets a ROI by default in order to avoid ending up with a smaller ROI after setting binning to something else than 1x1. But this means that it is possible that not the full frame is used at 1x1, even if binning is never changed. I never change binning and always shoot at 1x1 and I expect that to be at full frame.

If I'd ever change binning then I wouldn't mind having to set the ROI when I change back to 1x1 binning as long as this is made clear to me in some very obvious way in Ekos, e.g. a popup. I'd find a situation where I ended up with a smaller ROI at 1x1 without a warning or other notification unacceptable.

I actually agree with Thomas. Perhaps I misunderstand the complexity of this issue but shouldn’t sensor dimensions when binning always be computed straight from the actual dimensions? Meaning that when one switches from 1x1 to 2x2 to 4x4 and then back to 1x1 via 2x2 that all the dimensions should be computed from the “original” (meaning true) sensor dimensions dividing by the binning factor (and possibly applying %8) instead of the current implementation?

Ron, could you once more explain how you connect your mount to Ekos (cables, driver, etc) and what mount you have? That may give us a hint as to what's happening.

And perhaps you could list your imaging gear in your signature as most of us do so it is easy to see that.

Another option would be ... a SkyWatcher HEQ-5! A new one I mean. Install the belt mod and you’re good to go. Just a thought.

Now the big question of course is: what RMS does Gonzo get now his polar alignment error increased from 12” to over 1’?

That's an interesting way of scheduling jobs. Thanks.
