I’ve noticed SGP converts my FITS files when uploading to astrometry.net. If true, then this is almost certainly what is causing my failed plate solving attempts in SGP.
- I’ve uploaded the same fits file to both SGP and astrometry.net and only achieve success when uploading manually to astrometry.net. Furthermore, I’ve noticed the fits image I submit through SGP looks degraded, possibly binned?, when viewed on astrometry.net.
- I live in the middle of a city and require the use of narrowband filters. I’m sure the use of filters contributes to my SGP plate solving failures; however, astrometry.net with my original fits files handles it well.
Is it possible to add an option in SGP to upload the original fits file? OR, does anyone in the community have any ideas I can use to overcome the issue with the current version of SGP? Taking 3 minute exposures works, but I don’t view that as a solution (is that reasonable?).
