Plate solving not available for Nexstar 6 SE

Post by roelb » Wed Mar 21, 2018 12:46 am

It seems that the Plate Solving option isn't available for a Celestron Nexstar 6 SE.
For my Evolution it is available.

I must add that the 6 SE telescope has been recognized and connected and the "Scope Controls" within SharpCap are working fine.
But I can't select "Plate Solve" under the "Tools" tab.
Version Pro 3.1.5098.

Hello Robin,

I found the cause of this issue. The SD card containing the plate solving files wasn't connected to the mini-PC.
Their was a dummy card in.
So excuse me posting this thread.
Regards.

Phew, that's good news - I did look at the code and I couldn't see a good reason why it would fail for the Celestron mount...

cheers,

Robin
