Support custom astrometry.net urls (and ports)

I have astrometry.net serving locally (on laptop vs imaging machine) to support ventures to dark sites with no internet. I made this work hackishly today by setting my local ip in window’s host file on the imaging machine for nova.astrometry.net, there was also a bit of a hassle on port 80 (typically a special and restricted port).

I have astrometry.net working on windows subsystem for linux on my laptop. Platesolve2 has been a bit too erroneous for me, as have the dated ansrv/all sky solvers so I’m hoping to just get the easily integratable astrometry.net solver paths in ssg (and other software) plumbed through so I have less problems.

Also, please support changing the api key or leaving it blank. had to pull it from my server and create a faux local user account…

We already support this. Just enter the url and port:

We’ll consider the API key.

Thanks,
Jared

interesting, didn’t think the endpint combobox had editable text

So I filled that in.

Then it connected with that ip/port… but I got an error relating to login/api key :frowning:

Forbidden: (CSRF cookie not set.): /login

Changing back to the ip intercept method worked… for now.

Was able to do this in prism which has the user specify the api key rather than populate it automagically - along with server/ip. Hm.
