gsc1.1

Post by cjacobson » 19 Jun 2020, 03:14

I tried to install my previous gsc data from a zipped file used for AA6. I have dumped this several places. the star preferences module does not recognize it. I unzipped it in a folder called gscdata. I have never had this problem before. What is wrong?? thanks
I have installed AA7.

Hello, nothing has changed from AA6 to AA7 about the GSC: I suggest to check the Options of the star atlas, "Catalog 1" folder, verify that it's the same in AA6 and AA7. If you have AA6 and AA7 in the same PC, open them side by side to compare the star atlas options.
Greetings, Fabio.

I can not do that as my hard drive and mother board died and have been replaced. I have opened the gsc file in documents and asked aa7 to see it. It does not. I have placed the file in the root of the c drive as well. It did not see it there. by opened i mean I un packed it. What am I doing wrong? thanks

never mind after some struggle it worked. I do not know what goes wrong some times. Btw do I need a second star atlas and which one for general plate solving? Sorry to be a bother. jacobson

Hello, unless you need to send precise astrometric measures, there's not need to use other catalogues. By the way the UCAC4 contains more stars and it's more precise:
