    Currently, I am using Maxim DL with a ASCOM camera whose A/D is 18bit, but the image I captured always has maximum pixel lower than 65535, even I save it as 32bit fits image.
    Is there a way to capture 18bit image from camera correctly?

    MaxIm DL supports 16-bit data downloads only.

    What model of camera are you using? Only a few sensors with extremely large pixels can achieve a greater than 16-bit dynamic range.
