is it possible to shoot dark frames in automatic observatory? I would like to shoot darks with multiple exposure lengths and different bin modes during a cloudy night. Is this possible in Prism? Thanks

yes it is absolutely possible. We provide two ways:
  • 1. A dedicated tool to shoot one set at a time under Observatory > Capture Calibration Images > Darks
  • 2. You can use the "sequence" button of the camera control and choose whichever frames you wish. If you camera has a mechanical shutter, you can go under the option tab in the camera control and make sure
I am attaching some examples
