I have SGP (bought it) humming pretty well. I can run a sequence but I still have guiding off and plate solve off. (so as to have no hickups).
Last time out I did manage to get PHD2 guiding (fairly well?) a question for another group - but I right clicked on a image in SGP and wanted to see where I was aiming. I hadn’t aligned to anything yet.
It asked for info I didn’t know? (I think a pop up asked for a name or place?) It appeared to fill in coordinates from the mount? I just clicked go… and it didn’t solve. I then clicked BLIND (set to astron.net… ) and no blind. I then did a screen capture of the shot I was trying to solve and uploaded it to nova… ast…net and it quickly solved it.
Any idea why? any reason I have to enter extra data in SGP? but at nova.asto…net it just takes the shot and no other data to solve?
Only other problem is a persistent “comes and goes” problem. I click “TAKE ONE” and it goes into the start loop instead? In order to get it working properly (to take one), I have to reboot the software or the camera… usually the software.
