Ok, so I’m having a new-to-me problem with the plate solving feature. I’m using PlateSolve2 with Astrometry.net as the backup, and although it solves fast and reliably, SGP fails to sync the telescope afterwards. It happens in both the “Center Now” and “Solve and Sync” functions. I’ve never had an issue like this before, so I’m stumped.
I’ve tried several different things, and opened and closed SGP a half-dozen times. I thought that if I changed the Telescope Sync action to “Offset” or “None” that it may help, but then it just skips the Sync step and tries to center up but never does. The scope never centers on the target. Oh, and if I try to use Solve and Sync it will hang on the solving and not release the camera until I click Abort. (It’s actually already solved with PS2 and closed the window, it just continues to say solving and the camera controls are gray until I click abort)
Attached is the most recent log, with a single instance of the failed sync. Please let me know if you need more logs, and thanks for any suggestions.
Sorry, forgot to mention the gear. I’m using TheSkyX, latest build, and a Paramount MX+.
