Win 7, SG 18.104.22.16873 Downloaded an image of the Virgo Galaxies from the web, and SG solved it within a few minutes. I use astrometry.net locally on the laptop. When I told it to center on the target, it took an image, but was unable to solve it. This happened repeatedly, no matter where I pointed the telescope. Below are the logs from tonight. Any help much appreciated. I’m on holidays, and will be out again tonight weather permitting.
update: I don’t know how, but somehow the local endpoint (8080) for astrometry.net disappeared as a choice in control panel, leaving only the online version available. And last night I didn’t always have an internet connection active in the field. So this might explain why it wouldn’t solve. Still a mystery why the local endpoint option disappeared, and why SG was able to solve an image of the Virgo galaxies that I downloaded from the web, but not reference images that it took itself a minute later. I have reentered the endpoint for the local astrometry.net, so I will see tonight if that was the problem.
another update: I just tried, and I still can’t solve any images at all using the local endpoint. When I watch ansvr, I see no action at all when I ask it to solve. It does solve okay using the online endpoint.
