I’d love to get away from Elbrus and astometry.net, but no luck so far. I followed Andy’s instructions on ANSVR, and installed catalogs 4202 to 4207. My FOV is 22x28 arcmin. I tried to solve several of my images following Andy’s steps. It reported it was uploading to ansvr.net, but then simply came back and said “failed to platesolve image.” Any ideas? Elapsed time was 0s, if that helps. As I mentioned the other day, PlateSolve2 runs perfectly from its own .exe, but when I try to switch it on in SGP I get “Component comdlg32.ocx or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid.”
My test images all solve in Elbrus and on astrometry.net, but Elbrus doesn’t always work in an actual imaging session, and a few times lately a.net has been down. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know!
