Trying to see if I can try out plate solving at home with the above software before I waste an hour traveling out to my semi-dark site.
I can successfully control my Evolution mount with CPWI via SharpCap, and would like to see if plate solving works.
To that end, have selected as camera the deepsky camera simulator, which brings up the Orion nebula and neighborhood.
When I click on TOOLS, then PLATESOLVE (Yes, I know it won't move or center the mount),Astap pops up, program runs for about a minute, I get a "No Stars Found" error.
Do I need to do a Capture or some other action for it to do the blind plate solve, or does it not work with the simulated camera?
