SG Pro plate solving


#1

I have been using SkyX and am moving to SG Pro for my imaging. Can I use SkyX for plate solve or do I need to download other software?

Thanks,
Khushrow


#2

Khushrow,
SGP does not plate solve through TheSkyX. However we do support Pinpoint, PlateSolve2, and Astrometry.NET (both local and remote).

Thank you,
Jared


#3

Can you recommend which one of the three I should download and try.

Thanks,
Khushrow


#4

platesolve2 is included, just use that. it’s fast and works very well.

if you have a good internet connection, use Astrometry.net (online) as a backup.


#5

pfile Do I need internet connection to use plate solve2?


#6

Nope, you do not. Once you install the necessary files to your hard drive neither Platesolve nor Astrometry.net require an internet connection. Have been using both for several years now.
