Re: Sync issues after Plate Solving

TheSeapiglet... I've finally got a new build that seems to fix the issue. It hasn't been released generally yet.

Re: Sync issues after Plate Solving

Oopfan: Thanks for the explanation! Makes total sense now! Theseapiglet, I've been communicating with Synscan dev regarding a couple of issues with sync. They're aware and will fix in the next release, which is "coming soon". I have a pre-release version for testing that addresses some of the issues...

Re: Sync issues after Plate Solving

Hi Robin, I've been doing some more testing: 1. The Synscan app has it's own "emulator" mode that exhibits the same behaviour as with a real mount. You just need to download and install the latest Synscan app (http://www.skywatcher.com/download/software/synscan-app/), then go into settings, connecti...

Re: Select which plate solver to use

Hi, Manually navigate to c:\cygwin\bin and see if there is a file called solve-field there. If so, launch Sharpcap, go to settings, and select the plate solver tab. There select to enter a manual path and browse to c:\cygwin\bin, and select the solve-field file. That should let you use Astrotortilla...

Re: Saving live stack individual frames as fits

Thanks Robin, will give it a shot. I thought I had changed it to fits, as I use quick capture to get a few frames in fits to pass to the plate solver. This works fine... but for some reason my live stacked individual frames ended up in .png, even though my quick capture images showed up as *.fts. I ...

Re: Sync issues after Plate Solving

Hi Robin,

There's still something wrong with SynctoAZ, so having a toggle to use SynctoAZ or SynctoRADEC will still help.

Thanks!

Re: Sync issues after Plate Solving

Hi Robin,

Testing during the day, so don't know where any objects are. :) Will try again tonight, hopefully the clouds will clear. Tough to do all this testing during monsoon season.

Re: Sync issues after Plate Solving

Robin, I spoke too soon. No luck I'm afraid, even with the latest test build of Synscan. I'm using the latest beta of Sharpcap (3.2.5747.0). A plate solve is successful, but then I get some kind of logic error in the Sharpcap logs. This is the same error I also get in the latest official 3.1 version...

Re: Sync issues after Plate Solving

Thanks Robin. I've received a new build of Synscan to test synctoAltAz. I'll do that once I have a chance to fix the plate solver issues I'm having. Blind solves are failing in Sharpcap, where they worked fine a couple of days ago. All Sky Solver's stand-alone app works fine and solves correctly. Wh...
