FITS viewer which can call PlateSolve2
and add the plate solution to the FITS header. Also PNG and JPEG files
can be plate solved. The program will convert them to the FITS format.
viewer can read/write color FITS and also read/write PNG,
BMP and JPEG files. The viewer can convert raw images
of sensors with a Bayer matrix to color.
a good plate solver but can’t write the plate solution to the FITS
header using standard keywords. HNS_FV can call the
PlateSolve2 program and writes the found plate solution to the FITS
file header using standard keywords.
Working of the program:
- Load the FITS file in the viewer
- Press the “Solve” button
- Is the solution found press “Save” button.
principle it should be possible to rename the program as Platesolve2
and call it instead of PlateSolve2. The solution will then written
automatically to the FITS file. The
plate solution is read from the APM file produced by PlateSolve2.
There is a big variation in FITS file keywords. If this version doesn't work, please send me the FITS file for testing.

program. Feel free to distribute !
