Fov indicies from astrometry.net


#1

Can someone verify if I have the correct indicies downloaded to get a plate solve…this will be first time trying out SGP and plate solving…

Yup, I think you’re good to go. I went here and calculated out your FOV for both scopes/camera.

Then, you just pick the ones that match.

Thanks…I went to 12 string and it threw me that one was degrees and one was arc minutes when I calculated the views…it had been a long day and my brain wasnt functioning…
