FWIW. I’ve always used plate solve with the camera connected in SGP when using APPM and never a hitch (as long as you have the correct image scale in APPM).

Hi Ray, Decided to use the time last night to try my hand at modeling! Just using a simple 11 point model of my sky. Spent a great deal of time trying to get plate solving to work. I have a QHY 268C OSC camera and connected to it from APPM via its ASCOM driver. Using Pinpoint to PS. That would just not work. Even All Sky gave up. However I could easily plate solve and sync outside APPM via Pinpoint. Tried different bins too. Took a long time to download the image, and then the camera window turned white for a few seconds before showing the image, which looked good.
