Platesolve2 not working


#1

Hi

I’m sorry for all the newbie questions I have, but trying to fix one problem at a time.

I manually pointed the mount at Capella, for focusing, and then I hit the “Sync and solve” to let SGP know where I was. When I did that, it opens Platesolve2, it scans the number of stars ect, but when i gets to the matching screen, it simply says Platesolve2 is not responding. This happens everytime, and I kinda need it to work before I can get the auto-meridian flip to work.

Best regards,
Mats

A log would help.

Look to make sure the directories are located. Go to the Plate Solve tab and click Settings at the top right > then files on the windows that opens > then Configure Catalog Directories. Make sure both say Status: OK in green. If that isn’t it just let me know.

Thanks,
Charles

Also you can test your plate solving setup during the day. Just open a FITs from your setup with SGP, from there you can right click on the image and choose “Plate Solve”. Much better to get things going during the day than at night!

Thanks,
