Plate Solving Suddenly not working


Hello. Previously I had no problems with ‘Center Now’, ‘Solve and Sync’ but all of a sudden when I hit Center Now or solve and Sync it just hangs at Step 2. This was happening tonight between 8:30PM and 9PM.

Here are the fits files:

Here is the SGP log file:

I just recently upgraded and never had this problem prior to the upgrade. Not sure if that has anything to do with it.


Looks like the Astrometry.NET website is down. I highly recommend PlateSolve2 as your primary solver and using a local install of Astrometry.NET as your failover solver (ANSVR).


Aha! Looks like I’ll have to get the local plate solve configured. Thank you!
