APT & Platesolving


Recommended Posts

Use it all the time - great for centring objects in your FOV.    On the occasions Platesolve doesn't work I use Astrotortilla.

Platesolve in APT is easier to use i as APT works out all the parameters for Platesolve when you use a known camera.

Think I've now have this sorted, plate solve2 initially failed, I increased the max star size to 9. All sky plate solver worked from the start. Will try in anger at first opportunity.
