incorrect timestamp value displayed

Post by SimmoW » Sun Jun 17, 2018 4:12 am

Hi, loving SC in general, such a stable and easy to use package!

But in setting up my ASI224 for all sky imaging videos, I've found the timestamp is showing 2 hours ahead. I've tried checking SC options and ascom, can't see any way to correct it, anyone know how to?

I've set up a very simple but effective sky cam using the Arecont 1.55mm lens and a waterproof plastic box, with security dome. The old laptop keeps the temperature warm and dew away. Video channel below.

I think the timestamp in the frame itself is always UTC time. I have an item somewhere in the to-do list to make this switchable to local time, but it hasn't found it's way to the top yet, sorry.

I like your all-sky setup! Good plan with the laptop heat to keep the dew away.

Would love to see the timestamp time zone option.
