I’m brand new to ANSVR (astrometry.net running locally), and although I was able to successfully install and solve plates, some all-sky solutions failed. Moreover, a plate which successfully solves at Astrometry.net, fails locally; even after nearly 30 minutes of solve attempts. The same image solves within a few minutes at Astrometry.net.
Here is my set-up:
Using ANSVR 0.20 on port 9123
default config (except I set solver time limit to 1200 seconds)
16’ x 11’: indices 4206 (16 to 22 arcmin)
11’ @ 20%: indices 4200 (2 to 2.8 arcmin)
I am using Visual PinPoint in All-Sky solving mode (by-passing use of local reference catalogs)
After the failed attempt, PinPoint returns the message:
“All-sky solution failed: Submission 27 took over 10 minutes, something went wrong!”
(which is weird because I had set the time limit to 1200 seconds; 20 minutes).
I’ll add that using Visual PinPoint and the USNO A2.0 reference catalog will solve the plate in seconds.
Thanks in advance for any help.
