I have been trying for weeks to get Platesolve 2 or 3 to work on my computers. I have a HP Mini computer and a NUC 7i7 that cannot run Platesolve. My other computer runs it without any problem.
Is anyone running Platesolve on a mini computer of any sorts? If you are I’m keen to hear about it.
I have platesolved quite successfully and fast with both an i3 NUC and an i5 NUC.
Platesolve2. Never had a problem running it, nor does it ever fail, now that I have a bit of experience. Use a rather indifferent GOTO (star alignment? we don't need no stinkin' star alignment <smile> ) to get me close, although often the target is not in the frame.
I do it every time I image. It. Just. Works.
Got Pluto essentially dead center recently. GOTO, snap an 8 second sub, platesolve, correct (manually) just once. I also sometimes automate the process with Voyager. It has no problem, either.
Suggestion. Instead of getting frustrated at night, you can try getting it to work during the daytime.
