I used my friend SG Pro to test using SGPro to do my variable star imaging in a automated fashion. His version is v126.96.36.199. It worked fine.
So I bought my own copy of SG Pro. My version is V188.8.131.520. When I upload my images to VPHOT it is plate solved in VPHOT, except it doesn’t work with my version.!!!
Here is what another SGPro user said using one of my files…
Vladimir sent me an image of X Leo. The only thing I noticed was that the telescop field in the FITS header did not match the VPHOT field, but he said this change gave him a PinPoint error.*
I uploaded the image to Astrometry.Net and it solved fine. Plate scale and image angle were as in the FITS header. I uploaded it to the program I use, MPO Canopus, and it plate solved fine, which is interesting since I did not change the parameters of my setup to match that of the X LEO image. I uploaded the image to PinPoint in my setup and it plate solved fine.*
I am not sure where the breakdown is, but his image plate solves fine in 3 other plate solving engines, which is especially puzzling since VPHOT uses PinPoint to plate solve and PinPoint solved it fine for me. Best regards.*
I am a wits end trying to find a solution to the problem. I realize that there is a very, very high probability that the issue is with VPHOT. This is just a shot in the dark.
However, were there any changes between the two versions of SGPro that changed the plate solve routine or parameters??? Anything that I can look at and change in the FITS file that will help running down the “error”.
Thanks for your reply in advance.
