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...

Re: HNS_FV -> ASTAP

Solved with ASTAP version 0.9.7. I didn't write the solved FITS files in a multi of 2880 bytes (record). HNSKY has becomes more critical of the FITS format but now it works with ASTAP. 0.9.7. So download this version.

Please tell me if it doesnt work'.

Clear skies,

Re: HNS_FV -> ASTAP

Hello Ruedi, I fixed it in version 0.9.6. Rename or copy astap.exe to platesolve2.exe. Then select in APT, pointcraft, settings the directory where this surrogate platesolve2.exe (=astap.exe) is located. Note that APT saves the pointcraft image to solve to: .... TemporaryStorage\ImageToSolve.jpg If ...

Re: HNS_FV -> ASTAP

Hello Ruedi,

Yes that should still work. Note that haven't tested it for some time and added several other features. HNS_FV has a new name "ASTAP". So just rename astap.exe to platesolve2.exe and it should work.

If it doesn't work, please tell me.

Re: Asteroid Data URL

I found the solution. I was using the next calculated perihelion of August 2019 rather then the past perihelion of December 2017. Due to the highly elliptical orbit this resulted in big rounding errors. In version 4.0.0 RC7a I will calculate the nearest perihelion and then the result is spot on.

Re: Asteroid Data URL

Good news. Maybe If current year fails I should check for previous year to make it more failure proof. I discovered a new problem last night. I have imported the asteroid date of a NEO, asteroid 276033 (2002 AJ129) from https://ssd.jpl.nasa.gov/horizons.cgi The correct orbital elements are: 276033 (...
