Okay, I’ll try to be as clear as I can about what I’m doing.
- I am doing minor body astrometry and using SGP as my capture program.
- Other plate solvers don’t seem to work as well as the ansvr add-in for SGP, it is excellent when configured right.
- I only connect a camera and a focuser to the SGP equipment list.
I am having to right click to solve the images, it would be cool to have a quick button on the toolbar for this. It also appears that even though I can save the successfully solved location as part of the sequence, it is not writing that solved location to the fits header. That would be a fantastic feature because as I pointed out in another thread, the location of the mount is not exact to where you are actually shooting. Having it write the mount location to the fits header if the mount is connected is one thing, but having it write the solved image location / image scale would be better imo as it is usually close to exact.
I guess this might be a unique case, but it seems like it would be a natural flow of things. If you have a solution for getting plate solves that are accurate, why not also write that info to the fits header once it is obtained?
In the end this would save me a lot of time, as I solve the images with SGP to get the accurate location for the astrometry software I use which does not have any kind of auto plate solving in it. It is very widely used, Astrometrica.
Thanks for the consideration
