Pixel error threshold when centering


The scope centering settings have the following entry: “Attempt to center X time(s) until error is less than Y pixels”.

Does the pixel count take binning into account? If I use 3x3 binning for automatically centering the target, but would like to have the object centered within some number of pixels at 1x1 binning (since that’s the binning level I do my imaging at), do I have to take the binning into account or not? It would be nice if this setting didn’t depend on the binning level used when centering.

Inconsistency in binning-dependency of settings

You do. We do not account for this. Given that this is a profile setting and the binning at which plate solving is done is not typically variable, just set this once and you don’t have to worry about it.
