Re: The Plate Solving function in AA8.

Hi Fabio, I've been using plate solving since you added it to AA. Could you please clarify where AA plate solve gets it's catalog data and where it's stored ?

Re: ASCOM camera configuration in AA8

What brand camera is it? Is it possible you were using a native driver in Sharp cap and not the ASCOM driver? You mentioned you have the ASCOM platform installed, do you have the ASCOM driver for your camera also installed, Just trying to trouble shoot.

Re: Dark Calibrarion frames

As long as the darks and lights have the same exposure time you will be fine. To scale you would need to take darks with a longer exposure then your lights and a bias frame. There is a separate section in preprocessing that handles dark scaling, just don't use that feature.

When I get stuck or frustrated I ask a question here or send Fabio an email. The sequencer also has a helpful f...
