I’m helping a friend out with getting his SGP up and running (he’s on a trial period at the moment).
What isn’t working at the moment is plate solving with Pinpoint. Now I know this is fairly straightforward to set up as I have done it for my own set up without problem, but when we tried on his system, the Pinpoint plate solve fails - almost instantly. The blind failover does work, but we’d rather not be reliant on this because of the speed of Pinpoint.
I’m confident all of the settings are ok, and the GSC catalogue is pointed where it needs to be, both in pinpoints set up and SGP. I’ve double/triple checked all other relevant settings. Can anyone offer any guidance on what may be going wrong? If the log files reveal anything, I’d be really grateful for suggestions.
His set up is Atik 314 on a refractor (127mm, F7.5, focal length 952mm). The mount is connected via EQ Mod. SGP version is 22.214.171.12468
Here are the log files, the error seems to be
“No matching stars found. Check your estimated center-point RA/Dec, and your image scaling and quality.” What puzzles me is the image scale settings seem ok, and why would the blind failover work and not Pinpoint?
Thanks in advance for any help.
