Hallo,
I've got a problem with the indi_rpicam driver.
The exposure time i set in ekos does not change the picture exposure for exposures longer than 1 sec. It take the requested time to have a picture ex 30sec but the light in the image is not changing, for time shorter than 1sec it works as aspects.
In raspistill it all works as aspects.
My best regards.

Hallo,
my first time writing here,
Thanks for the awesome work!

I'm playing with this feature trying to find a way to guide using the raspberry hq camera with a better framerate (now with indi_rpicam about 9 sec for 1/2 sec exposure).
This feature seems really interesting.

I use raspistill to get a raw then rawtran to create a fits file.
The fits file opens in fits viewer and other softwares.

If i use a fits file created by ekos (from my dslr) ccd_simulator loads it no prob
If i try to open the fits created by rawtran i get this error:

2020-10-18T20:29:59: [WARNING] Error reading file /mnt/ramdisk/pic.fits due to error keyword not found in header


and i got no exposure.

here the fits file
