APPM support for Platesolve2?


Gabe Shaughnessy
 

Is Platesolve2 support on the roadmap for APPM?  I know that it does use Platesolve2 via SGP, but I'd rather not have SGP as a go between since it's not installed on all my systems and have had issues with it in the past being stable enough for all night unassisted imaging.  I tried TheSkyX's ImageLink, but it kept giving me errors that it couldn't find a suitable plate solve (either plate-solve or all-sky solve).  I had the correct pixel scale and had synced it earlier using platesolve2 via Voyager.

Hi Gabe,

There are no plans to natively implement platesolve2.

Regarding the SkyX failures please double check you followed the procedure in APCC's help file to setup in SkyX the ability to external software applications to use SkyX. Also, make sure you are running the latest daily update of SkyX.
