Re: Platesolve works then doesn't?

Hello Jim, The sarch range is set by APT but is is pretty large so that is not th problem. The problem is the image itself. The stars show a severe tracking problem. Normally you need 10 or 20 seconds before the tracking stabilise. The gears need to settle after a slew. ASTAP will interpretate these...

ASTAP versions 0.9.264/0.9.265/0.9.267 commandline bug

The ASTAP versions 0.9.264 / 0.9.265/ 0.9.266 / 0.9.267 are effected by a command-line mode bug. If used in the commandline mode and the solving fails an ASTAP window will open and wait for user input. It doesn't happen if ASTAP is used as a PlateSolve2 substitute. So only NINA and CCDCiel program u...

Re: Old versions of HNSKY

Hello Jens,

That is a very old one. You could download version 3.3.5:
http://www.hnsky.org/hnsky_setup_335.exe

I will drop this one also at sourceforge and maybe some older versions.

Clear skies, Han

Re: Plate Solving issue...

Version 0.9.261 is released with calibration prior to solving. Still a few of your images, master darks, flats will be useful for my collection of test images. Good testing it essential.

Re: Plate Solving issue...

Applying a dark will certainly help. I see that for my QHY5 guide camera. Very noisy but when pHD2 subtract a dark automatically it is okay. H-alpha imaging and an uncooled camera is not ideal. Okay mabe something to add. Could you provide me with some short exposures e.g. 20 seconds and some corres...

Re: Plate Solving issue...

Hello Simon, The first uncalibrated image is 1) out of focus and 2) full of hot pixels. If view it in the astap viewer and play with the sliders, there are hundered of spikes brighter then the stars. So first fix would be to focus better. The temperature is 17 degrees, but I assume it hasn't a pelti...

Re: Specify reference frame?

The upload to Sourceforge was forgotten. Now it is uploaded. I also cleared default the image edges for the case there is no overlap between the blinked images. ASTAP v0.9.258
