as I started with SGPro I also purchased a PinPoint licence, mainly because I was afraid it will be too complicate to install Astronometry.Net and I didn’t want to fight at too many places and I think my decision was ok for that time.
But in the meantime I have installed local Astronometry.net. Because I urgently needed a local fall back solution as PinPoint fails to solve if the target is too way off (and at my standard imaging place I have no internet connection).
Another drawback of PinPoint is that it is not possible to change its default time out (60s) in SGPro which makes it overall too slow. So I finally switched completly to local Astronometry.Net.
Now I am wondering, why anybody should use PinPoint (for 149$) instead e.g. Astronometry.Net or PlatSolve 2 (free) - besides easy installation? Have I overseen something? Are there some drawbacks of the free solutions?
(it’s free - whats wrong with it? )
