Mosaic and rotate

I tried to do a 2 panel mosaic with AA8.
Even when I set multiple alignment points it seems that it doesn't do rotate.

Am I doing wrong something or is it not really rotating the panels ?

Re: saving files

Just to be clear - to save jpg you choose File - Save optimized JPEG.

Re: saving files

Just to confirm.
You are not trying to save something under program files folder?

Re: Stacking leads to elongated stars in the corners

What stacking method did you use, in DSS or in AstroArt ?

Anyway, I think you should get a field flattener for better edge stars (if that bothers you).

Making photometry measurements in AA8 (and do a AAVSO file)

Hello, I've tried to make AAVSO compatible file which I could upload (to AAVSO) of an RR Lyrae type star: https://www.aavso.org/aavso-alert-notice-786 So far no luch with my normal software I use (ASTAP). Haven't used AA much execpt some individual astrometry/photometry measurements with AA7. So bat...

Re: No star removal when processing in AA 8 ?

I was blind.
It had moved from Options to Extra in Preprocessing.
Sorry :oops:

Re: Plate Solving - No Luck

Continue this plate solve thing.

Just tried plate solving with AA 8.
It seems it can't solve if I don't rotate (and flip horizontally) but if I do it will solve. Camera angle is -87.
Plate solving has default setting, ie 180 degrees rotation.

Re: Follow minor planet - or comet

I guess they work if they are rotated. But was hoping it would work without doing it.
Guess I would like an explanation why they need to be rotated before the follow comet stacking works.

Edit: I think I got it working now.
My rotation angle is now -87.07 ( in Observer settings).

Re: Follow minor planet - or comet

I would still like to make this work (without rotating images). I plate solve image and get -92.65 as camera rotation angle. Put this in Observatory data. Get current comet data (angle and speed). And the result is image attached. Does it make difference that in fits the camera angle is 88 (SGP puts...

Re: Reject subs with bright backgrounds.

Fabio has good solution.
For now I have used free ASTAP software for selection

Re: Feature request

Thank you for suggestions.

I propose an other :D

In gradient reduction using points could there be feature for spreading points based on adu levels, or some kind of automatic spreading?
