Hi, I am hoping someone might be able to help me out here in how to install ASTAP in Pointcraft ( in Astrophotography tool )
I have gone into Pointcraft and went to the link for ASTAP that it provides.
I have downloaded the 64 bit version and that didn't work, so downloaded the zipped 32 bit version.
That worked, and i have unzipped / extracted all files.
I have also downloaded the H18 star map.
Now i am a tad stuck as what i am suppose to do to let Pointcraft know how to access ASTAP for solving
I went to extract / unzip the file and was prompt where to put it,
I made a separate folder called ASTAP and put all the extracted folders in there.
The H18 star database got installed where the computer wanted it, i just wrote down where it is so i know for latter on when i get this all sorted.
So after all that, what link do i have to tell pointcraft?
Do i just have to tell it were the folder i called ASTAP is, or do i need to tell it were the application astap is
( there are 5 different applications under the ASTAP folder, astap, dcraw, deep_sky, unprossed_raw, vairable_stars )
Then what do i have to do with this H18 star map folder?
This folder got installed under program files / astap
As you can see, i am a little confused here at the moment for what i am suppose to do.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
