Summary0001823: Gain and offset in FITS header
DescriptionHi Patrick,

is CCD/CMOS gain and offset data available to CCDciel from the driver?
If so, it would be nice to have this data in the FITS header, to have it available when getting darks the day after without remembering how it was set the night before... :-)

Thank you!

This is probably possible but I need your help to find how to find the values because my Atik camera as no adjustment for that.
What camera driver do you use?

ASCOM as a Gain property but I not found any reference to Offset.

INDI as no standard property for that. So this is specific to the camera driver.

Hi Patrick,

I have a zwo camera (asi 1600) and I use it through Indi.
The camera is a cmos and has both gain and offset.
How can I help you?
Thank you.

I need to know how indi report this properties.
I make a small script you can run to get this information.

- download indi-info.tar attached to this issue.
- extract the script from the tar: tar xf indi-info.tar
- start indiserver with only the zwo driver: indiserver indi_asi_ccd
- start a Indi client and connect the camera
- run the script: ./indi-info
- upload here the result file indi-info.txt

Thank you for the file.

So the information is in the CCD_CONTROLS group.
The values are:
Gain=200
Gamma=50
Brightness=50
Bandwidth=40
Flip=0
and more auto-exposure values probably not relevant.

Do you want all this 5 values in the header? or more?

Hi Patrick and thank you for the quick reply.
From what I understand (I'm still new to the camera) the two most important factors are Gain and Brightness, the latter being usually referred to as Offset.
The Gamma value is normally left at its default of 50, no need to play with it, the Bandwidth refers to the USB download speed and probably flip has to do with meridian flip.
So I believe that including Gain, Gamma and Brightness in the FITS header would be great and more than enough.

Thank you very much!

This was easy to do because the indi_asi_ccd "CCD_CONTROLS" group is similar to indi_v4l2_ccd "Image Adjustments" group I already implemented for video recording.

Revision 602 add the three values in the header for INDI controlled ASI camera:
https://sourceforge.net/p/ccdciel/code/602/
I will make version 0.9.11 later today with this change.

For ASCOM I need the same kind of information from the ASCOM Diagnostic, "get profile" button.
If someone is interested please open a new issue and include this data.
