When you say the camera took some exposures but had more failed attempts you were getting at least some plate solves?

Usually when I get failed attempts it is because my telescope is pointing into a tree. Do you have the horizon limits properly specified to the mount is always trying to solve against clear sky?

Good afternoon everyone,

Last week for the first time I tried to build a pointing model with APPM and I failed miserably. I searched on the groups but couldn't find anything. Does anyone know of and/or could point me to some instructions other than the AP manual? I read that but I must be doing something wrong, the mount pointed, the camera took some exposures but I had more failed attempts than successful ones so a Dummy step-by-step would be really appreciated.
