A|so, to add, does Planewave 2.29 in SGP recognize a 32 bit format of the Mallincam 16cTEC. I’m also getting support on the AP GTO yahoo group and this question has come up. Can you confirm if this is an issue with this version of the SGP software?
In addition, I am using an AP 0.67 Focal Reducer on a 14" RC scope. FL is 2848x0.67=1908mm.
Pixel size on the 16cTEC Mallincam camera is 3.8x3.8 microns. Thus giving me 0.41 “/pixel at 1x1 binning. I believe this is correct. In SGP I input 1908mm focal length. In APPM I input 0.41 in the Plate Solve tab as it requests the 'unbinned” X and Y arcsec/pixel. I’m shooting at 2.x 2 binning and I believe the SGP and APPM takes that into account. Guess these would be theoretical values.
Per Ray’s suggestion in Yahoo I ran my M57 through Astrometry.net with this configuration with camera on 2.2 binning.
Image scale came back at 0.626 "/pix which was with DB2 on my camera. So APPM and SGP ask for unbinned which should be 0.31 "/pix.
Can you confirm this Is correct?
