>>Maintenance update. Added small step zoom by Shift+Mouse wheel and small steps rotation by Alt+Mouse wheel.

Re: After APT > ASTAP/PlateSolve2 - increment filename of created .fits file

Yes the 5 degrees step should be smaller. Maybe I allow setting the position manually it in the settings menu.

Note that the mosaic is not saved automatcally. For this save supplement 2 manually.

Re: After APT > ASTAP/PlateSolve2 - increment filename of created .fits file

Hello Jim, As Ruedi indicated, rename the file or select it with the mouse and just hit CNTRL-C CNTRL-V to copy it to an other name. All FITS files in the directy will be plotted. It is not ideal and Ivo is in the best position to improve it. HNSKY has already a server command to load a fits file. S...

Re: HNS_FV -> ASTAP

Yes many thing where already available like streching.

Note. APT uses the same file name. If you rename the FITS file you can display several images on the HNSKY map. HNSKY will display all FITS images found in the selected folder.

Re: HNS_FV -> ASTAP

Hello Ruedi, Okay, I will look into this and if If I can speed it up by doing so. How many pixels do your images have? It would be much better if I reduce the size for displaying in HNSKY to something like 500x300 pixels. That will also speedup the process and keep HNSKY responsive and fast. Give me...
