Re: Optical distortions for SP2 and SP3

I found it in pre-processing and alignment. Awesome! Seems to work on my Hyperstar images and improves stars.
Will test it on DSLR images with short focal lenses as well. That will put it to a stretch :-)

Re: Optical distortions for SP2 and SP3

Hello Fabio,
Very interesting option for large-area shots with short-focus lenses. I couldn't find the option in SP2. Where is it? Somewhere in Preprocessing?

I am also interested to test it out for SP3.
Good stuff!

Re: saving files

Hello Stefano,
Did you enter your license information when installing AstroArt? If you run in demo mode, you can do almost everything in the program, except saving files.
Just a thought

Re: Local zoom changes magnification

Friendly reminder:
This is still an open issue in SP1.
Local zoom jumps back 1 step from min magnification when performing any tasks (mask; filter, etc) on the image.
Whereas, in AA7: Magnification stays no matter what.
Cheers

Re: Plate Solving - No Luck

I did have issues with plate solving a few months ago as well. See also https://www.astroart-forum.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=637 The resolution came when having the horizontal field well defined with just a few % (<10%) variation allowed. 20% or even 50% as I can see in your screen shots has bee...

Re: Where is the GAIA catalog?

If you look in the e-mail with your access data to AA8, there should be a section with optional downloads.
In my case it read:
"The following downloads are optional:"

I tested the links again and they seem to work fine.
Hope this helps

Re: Error message "Not Found - GSC..."

The directory for the star catalogs are not in the program folder, but in the <username> documents folder, depending on your installation choices. In AA8, you can even use a compressed GAIA DR2 catalog. Check also your settings in the tab “star atlas”.
Hope this helps.
