    Hi!

    I am having trouble determining how to enable overscan from the C API. I see a number of areas in the code that reference it, but none of them seem to work for me. Some of them appear to be dead ends in the code.

    My goal is to either a) know that overscan is not supported, or b) figure out how to from C.

    Thanks!

    Steve,
    max. overscan value is 200 pixels in both directions, but for STX cameras it is 128 pixels. I think, you could simply inscrease your requested image size like follows:
    overscan_width = CCD_width + 128 and overscan_height = CCD_height + 128 pixels if you need both. Pass such params to all requested APIs. Hope, this will work.
