So the universe is clearly angry at me for stealing too many photons last night and it's blessed me with clouds tonight. Fine, I needed to expand my dark library anyway. Here are some thoughts I had while doing that.
If I have multiple cameras, I should be able to run the dark library tool in parallel for each of them, eg. guide camera and imaging camera.
I'd like to keep the generated dark library someplace it can be shared (eg. a network drive) among various rigs. Yes, I've also got a dark library on my network share that I can use with Siril, but it's nice to let Ekos do some of that work for me.
I'd like to be able to use bigger intervals. Right now it seems I can go up to 20s steps; once I get to a couple of 120s or 180s exposures I'd prefer to be able to increase by up to 60s for the generated dark sequences
Dark library manager (DLM) limits me to collecting 20 darks for a given exposure range. Why not let me take as many as the sequencer would allow lights? This would probably help in compensating the bias too, right?
DLM doesn't show me other capture parameters, eg. gain or offset.
The CCD column isn't useful given that I already know what camera I'm operating on because of the drop-down
DLM doesn't let me choose what gain(s) to use
DLM doesn't let me multi-select and delete a bunch of darks that I didn't want
DLM doesn't preserver sort order when deleting entries
DLM can't sort by multiple columns, eg. first by duration and then by temperature
