I’ve been using Platesolve2 since it came out in beta with no problems until now. Last night PS2 failed to solve every time, even after the mount was synced correctly with local astrometry.net
Until last night I was imaging with my SV152 and plate solves worked fine. Last night I changed to my SV80 and the solves failed. The image scale is set properly and again blind solves work and solve within about 20sec.
Looking at the LOG FILE there doesn’t seem to be any indication why it failed. See 8:27:56 for the first PS2 failure.
The problem is that it takes nearly 4min for PS2 to fail before astrometry kicks in. At the scope that feels like an eternity.
Any idea what could cause PS2 to fail?
