Im having trouble figuring out how to get my image to show up on any of the screens in NINA. Just single shots. I can find them in my desktop folder I’ve setup. Can view them too. I something simple I’m sure. I’m mainly trying to setup this new program so that I can plate solve with the canon. Hopefully without internet connection like sharpcap.

Are you saying that SharpCap needs an internet connection to plate solve images?

 

It doesn't other than to download the solving program (astroTortilla/Ansvr/ASPS/ASTAP) and the correct index files.  While I'm not a NINA user I suspect the same would be true for it.

It does not. But it does not work with canon cameras. So I am trying nina to hopefully make that happen. Just cannot get the images on the screen/user interface of nina

It has always worked with my Canon T5i. Got a couple of hours of clear skies last night. Here's what I did:
Run a sequence (even if with 1 shot), enable slew and recenter. Start the sequence, it takes the picture, downloads it, plate solves and slews the scope to center the object.

NINA plate solves for me with a Canon as MTC said. Be sure you’ve got the correct focal length entered.

ASTAP is great - usually solves about as quickly as the image renders on screen gif me. Just download the program and libraries, tell NINA where it is and you’re good to go.
