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

Done in version 0.9.10. It takes now only seconds. Here a very brief manual Instructions: It is possible to rename the ASTAP.EXE program as Platesolve2.exe and call it instead of PlateSolve2. The solution will then automatically be written to the FITS file. The plate solution is read from the APM fi...

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...

Re: Server

Interesting idea but very unlikely. That would required a server with a large bandwidth and a lot CPU power which you also have to share with other users. I would also need assistant to program the web interface because that is something I'n not used to. Something for Google or the other big server ...

Re: HNS_FV -> ASTAP

Place a feature request for the FITS format and use of the FITS header keywords on the ideas box. JPEG is not ideal. Lossless formats like PNG or TIFF would preserve the image better. To allow APT to write FITS files will probably will take some programming on pixel level. You can't use standard com...

Re: HNS_FV -> ASTAP

Just two more things. - To redraw the new FITS file produced just hit the space bar in HNSKY. - Besides rotating the map to the place imaged, you can also open the fits file in HNSKY FILE menu to go to the position. - Since APT produces JPG files with limited amount of grey/color, it is better to se...
