Hi Bill,

I opened them, they are fake images with trashed FITS headers that are barely even passable. Why would I care if
fake images solve? I dont take fake images. I take real ones.
What exactly is wrong with the headers? ASTAP can load the file, read the approximate RA/Dec coordinates, display the 16-bit image
(albeit vertically flipped), show the image dimensions, and yet it doesn't seem to be able to solve the image??

I agree that PinPoint is outdated and slow, but it does solve the image in less than a couple of seconds. So do PlateSolve2 and
SkyX.

I am for including ASTAP as an option in APPM, but I need to perform due diligence to make sure it is robust and accurate. If not,
that could lead to lead to support issues, including trying to potentially resolve inaccurate pointing and tracking rates.

Here, try a real image: HIP_100453_LIGHT_HA_900s_BIN1_-25C_002_20190429_025821_765_W.FIT

Is anyone else having trouble opening the FITS images at this link?

That's very weird...

See attached ASTAP screenshot
