Plate solve has become unavailable on my system. I was using images taken with SharpCap and opening them from the Plate Solve dialog and entering the proper scale and approximate position. I am curious as to why the image context menu has plate solve disabled, yet slew here is not – even though my mount is not even connected.
I have plate solved many times with no equipment connected and the plate solve dialog just closes when I am trying to load an image. Also, I don’t know why I get no logging for plate solving. There is only one log file and that was from a week ago.
I see no changes to the date on any files in the SGP folder, and yet – I cannot plate solve any more at all.
What am I missing, here?
For some reason, the second image is not uploading, however – the Open Image menu selection in Plate Solve never brings up the dialog any more – it just closes abruptly, now. That – is new.
See image #2 in reply below
This image is a successful plate solve of the same image – M44.
