Re: Eggy Stars with Polar Axis Correction

Bill Long

One interesting thing I noticed was that the reported RA error values for each solve last night were substantially higher (about 4x higher) than in previous nights on the same set of points. In fact I stopped the first run when I saw that assuming I forgot to lock something down or my PA was affected by something, etc. Nothing was out of the ordinary, ran the model anyhow, and performed the testing after. 

So the results were different (no eggs) but so was the model data itself.

I know PinPoint does, and I believe SkyX's Image link does.
