Just to say I have just started using platesolve 2 after having used a number of other platesolvers. I still use ansvr as the blind solver. My experience of platesolve2 is good so far (based on N=4 imaging sessions), but although n=4 sounds poor evidence, platesolve2 has removed a lot of the variability i was seeing previously. It integrates well with SGP and its software interface is helpful. If you can give it a reasonable guess it solves reliably for me, which isn’t an experience I’ve had before.
So just wanted to share this if anyone is struggling with plate solving. Installation is very easy too.
Thanks to providers for great software!
The kit I use is Celestron C11 and SBIG STT8300
