Summary0002085: Pixel size doesn't change in the FITS files. It only changes in the settings menu.
DescriptionAt my observatory if change the pixel size in the setting tab "camera", the value is accepted but it is not changed in the FITS files. It is always fixed at 6 micrometer. So the solver ASTAP can't solve the FITS files unless I modify the telescope focal length accordingly to compensate. The focal length is processed and reported correctly in the FITS file. The value is stored in settings xml.

Same at my office compute. The pixel size value in the FITS files is stuck at 8 micrometer. Changing isn't reported in the FITS file. Not even after restart program.

Most likely reason is that disabling check mark "pixelsize from camera driver" doesn't work.

XPIXSZ = 8 / [um] Pixel Size X, binned
YPIXSZ = 8 / [um] Pixel Size Y, binned

TagsNo tags attached.

I confirm the problem. I think this option is never used because all the camera report correctly the pixel size.
I correct that later today,

OK I get it, actually this option do not change the FITS header that is set only with the information from the camera. But it is used to compute the pixel scale option for
This is incoherent and I will change it.
