Youtube video showing working plate solving with Sequence Generator Pro and PlateSolve2

Hello all,

There have been a couple people indicating that Sequence Generator Pro+PlateSolve2 isn't working for them in APPM. Here's a video where I walk through the steps and screens, showing that Plate Solves and Recals do, in fact, work! :-)

Good video.

APPM works just fine with SGP + PS2, and with SkyX  Image Link (thats what I use). It would be nice to get an option that is not tied to paying money though, so I like the idea going around to get ASTAP added as a supported solver.

Hi Bill,

Good video.
Thanks! My hope is that the video will show something that the few who have had problems can see something they missed.

APPM works just fine with SGP + PS2, and with SkyX Image Link (thats what I use). It would be nice to get an
option that is not tied to paying money though, so I like the idea going around to get ASTAP added as a supported
solver.
Yes, there are many other combinations of plate solvers and camera control that can work as well. Adding the free ASTAP plate solver
is on the list of things I suggested for an upcoming build of APPM. It will be relatively easy to add so I am hoping it will be
approved by Marj.

Thanks for the video!  All my settings are as shown in the video.  The ONLY difference is that my guide camera (ZWO 294)) is via ASCOM.

I have an SBIG ST-i, which I used some time ago and successfully built a model (see early notes )

I was trying the ZWO guide camera for several reasons.  I will either revert to the SBIG or switch to ASTAP or both.
