Why didn't PHD find a star here?

The brightest star is too close to the edge, but four other stars have SNRs high enough that they should have worked. The log just shows that PHD refused to settle - over 2.6. Any ideas? I’m still using PHD1. Time to move to PHD2?

Probably better to post this on the PHD group.

Well, my .02 is that PhD 2 is so much better in so many ways that I would not even think of going back to V1. It may or may not solve your issue but you will prefer it in any case.

Upgrading sounds like good advice. I’ve always gone for “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it,” but now it sounds like it’s breaking. I’ll go ahead and move to PHD2.
