I am having some frustrating problems with Pinpoint.
1.) Where does SGP get the detailed settings for solving with pinpoint?
2.) Does it use the settings in the visual Pinpoint application?
3.)What is the preferred catalogue? I am using both GSC and UCAC4. Does one have an advantage over the other? I think GSC is good with wider fields and general use and UCAC4 is good with narrower fields of view and dimmer stars? If one does not work, I switch to the other. I use the astronomy.net as a fail alternative, but I sure want the faster solve without having to go to either local or internet astronomy.net The plate solves keep failing and it is frustrating.
4.) Maybe it is my exposure settings. I am using 5 seconds. Should I change it to something else?
5.) Is there a more stable and reliable solution out there than Pinpoint?
I have nailed it down to the solve routine. It seems it does not even go to the local solve routing and goes straight to the internet fail over. I have gotten it to work, but it is not reliable and it is driving me crazy.
