I have a major problem trying to use PlateSolve 2 with the latest production release of SGP (rel 3.0.3 169). When using the PlaneWave “stand alone” plate solve app interface on an image it takes about 3s to solve it. When trying to solve the same image with “Plate solve” from within SGP and with exactly the same catalogs, it will never resolve. The same is true for various images and images captured by different cameras.
I have noticed that the most recent plate solve app downloadable from PlaneWave says “PlateSolve v 2.28”, while when the same window appears from within SGP it says “PlateSolve v 2.29”. Is there a compatibility issue with rel 2.29 that causes the problem? Or have I missed something in the settings of SGP? All suggestions appreciated!
