Re: Bad X scale?

Thanks Bryan! I think I'll bump my tolerance by a percent and see what happens. :)
Morris, raising the tolerance might be okay if you don't know image scale exactly, but not if the image scale is already known.

When you see "Bad X-scale" that means even though the plate solve was successful, the image scale (and RA/Dec coordinates) were probably wrong. That is, it was a bad solution and should not be included in the model.
