Getting coordinates in Framing and Mosaic Wizard


#1

It appears that for some objects, the Framing and Mosaic Wizard is getting a completely wrong RA and DEC value (SGP v2.4.2.6) for selected objects. I entered “M27” and did a Fetch and the resulting RA and DEC values are incorrect.

M27’s location is RA 19° 59’ 35" | Dec 22° 43.266’

The new feature in the Plate Solve dialog box - Object: – is also passing these same incorrect hints to PlateSolve2.

While a Fetch for M27 gets the wrong RA and DEC, a Fetch of “Dumbell” gets the correct values:

Thanks for this report. This issue has been corrected.

Hmmm I wonder if that was matching Menkowski 1-27? Did you see anything in the fetched image?


#5

No, it was matching PK353+6.1 (M2-7)
