Local astrometry giving wrong angle


#1

I set up the local astrometry server and configured it in SGP. When I load an image and blind solve the RA and Dec results are correct, but the angle is off. It’s showing 276.03 degrees but the ansvr log shows 96.03 (even 360 - 96.03 = 263.97 is wrong). The ansvr log agrees with nova.astrometry.net. Any ideas?

We do not return the angle as indicated by Astrometry.NET, we standardized around Pinpoint… This is the angle PP would give, so we alter the Astrometry.NET angle to match. It is important that all solvers return the same angle.
