    In CCDCamera.Expose(Duration, Light[,Filter])

    if Duration = 0, Light = 0, you get a bias frame, as specified by the IMAGETYP FITS keyword
    if Duration > 0, Light = 0, you get a dark frame
    if Duration > 0, Light = 1, you get a light frame

    Is there a way to specify that the frame type is a flat field? Or would it be all the same to use Light = 1, then manually change the IMAGETYP keyword from 'Light Frame' to 'Flat Field' afterwards?
