    I am using a demo version of Maxim DL to assess it prior to purchase. We have it controlling a FLI CCD camera. When we take an image using RBI flooding, the DATE-OBS time recorded is for the beginning of the flood sequence, not the start of the image. We want to use the software for time sensitive photometry, so having the incorrect time in the FITS header will be a problem. Are we doing something wrong (is there a parameter to be set somewhere), or is this a feature of Maxim DL that the time recorded is not the true image start time?
