Quote:Why would you not just use plate solves with your C11? There shouldn't be any issues doing that. I get my images within 50 pixels of my target easily and it's usually around 8 pixels. The main problem you have is that by doing the aiming with a different scope that isn't perfectly aligned.... Well you can figure it out. Just try the software. Or, try SGP. It has the option for a localized astrometry server too.

Quote:astrotortilla will work with any software that outputs FITS, JPEG, and can even capture from the screen. internally it uses the astrometry.net blind solver, which has been proven rigorously in research to be a very robust solver.it is not as fast as PinPoint or Elbrus but is completely blind - you don't need to provide the camera orientation, pixel scale, or even hints as to the approximate RA/DEC where it's solving.

Quote:Sean, if you can pass on your settings this would be much appreciated.On my system solves take about 20-30 seconds. It is getting RA/DEC hints, and constrained to a 30-degree area around the reported RA/DEC. I have also pruned down the indexes.

Quote:hi Anat,yup i have also pruned my indexes. What i noticed was even with downsampling the solve time was still high. i think downsampling itself consumes CPU so it would be better to bin.

Quote:Dave, it works good
Quote:Dave, not that I know of. AT only knows how to talk to ASCOM (and nothing else) on the mount side, so anything with a working ASCOM driver that supports resyncs will work.
