Re: Access Violation Error when attempting to Analyse or stack CR2 files

Hello John,

I can repeat the same error here. While improving the code I created somewhere a bug and will fix it. Note from sourceforge you can download and older version but I will fix this problem today or tomorrow.

Clear skies, Han

Re: Length of Search Time

Hello Mark, There is no time limit only the maximum radius of the search area. So yes that is possible to limit the search. Set in the setting the search regions to a smaller value. See screenshot below. The maximum regions will be equivalent to 90 degrees radius, 2500 to 61 degrees. Probably a "100...

Re: Platesolving problems force need a re-boot

James, I have noted a few times that using APT the ASTAP process is not properly closed/stopped. When it happens next time, use ctrl-alt-delete to have a look to the task manager. If you still see under Processes an ASTAP running, kill that process. That could fix it. If this is the case, probably i...

Re: ASTAP platesolve failure using NINA

The main problem is that the stars on the left side are oval. Most stars are ignored as galaxies. Probably adjusting the telescope optics could help. You can see which stars are ignored if you try in the viewer under tool the CCD inspector. Still it is possible solve it. By selecting downsampling 3 ...

Re: ASTAP platesolve failure using NINA

Image looks good. Can you send me the image? E.g via 1) Google drive, or 2) upload to https://uploadfiles.io/ and give me the link or 3) upload to nova.astrometry.net and give me the link. 1) To solve an image in ASTAP, you have to enter a rough guess of the position in the viewer. If it is a know o...

Re: collimation and tilt

The tab "inspector" doesn't work for you since there is no focuspos. It is always indicating 999. If you have an automatic focuser, then we should check the correct key word in the header. If not then this routine doesn't work for you. It the focuspos is available and you collect several images at d...

Re: collimation and tilt

Hello Bernard, The questions are more difficult since many spammers like to write rubbish in the forum. I have to update the documentation about the inspector. The tilt is now expressed in HFD. From your screenshot the highest HFD is 5.82. The lowest is 5.32, so the difference is 0.48 as indicated b...

Re: Can't find unprocessed_raw (64 bit Linux)

Hi Greg, The program expects fpack and funpack at /usr/bin Command to install it at Ubuntu flavors is: sudo apt-get install libcfitsio-bin It is very rarely used. I have seen it used once by Professionals to compact FITS files but that's less relevant with the huge storage space available nowadays. ...

Re: Can't find unprocessed_raw (64 bit Linux)

Good, no other external programs are used unless you want to compress FITS files using cfitsio pack/unpack.

I will add /usr/bin path to the code (next version) in case unprocessed_raw is not found.

Thanks for the feedback.
