I cannot download images when I do a mock exposure or plate solve. It always shows M42

Go to your imaging program (CCDCiel, APT, SGP...) to the device setting of the camera (simulator) and do the following:

Select sky simulator as camera.
Go to setting and select the same file as sky simulator (default documents\image.jpg). See red marked below:

Set also the image dimensions the same.

Clear skies, Han

Dear Han:

Your program was very useful to me. It taught me a great deal about platesolving in Sharpcap, Astrotortilla, Nebulosity and showed instant connectivity and communication upon connection in all these programs as well as Cartes du Ciel.

The weather here is very cloudy and this is giving me an opportunity to test and learn things for the next time I am out under the stars.

Dan Kahraman.

I issued a new version with a upgraded star database from magnitude 13 to 14. So you will see more stars.
