    Too little information to say anything. Please provide:
    1. Camera serial number
    2. Dark frame in FITS format
    3. Non-saturated light frame in FITS format

    The curved edge of the image was the clue. I disassembled the filter wheel and one filter was unscrewed and stopping the works. It was sluggish before and now jammed. I tightened it up , reassembled, and tested. The filters change instantly where they had been very slow. All is well, as Douglas Adams says, "don't panic."
