My setup consist of a Canon 60D with a 18 to 200 mm lens on a SA GTI. I have no view of Polaris. Last night was my first night out with this setup. I started out with these settings:
focal length: 50 mm,
focal ration: 5,
Pixel size: 4.29
Start from Current Position: on
Solver Search Radius: 10
I'm using ASTAP for both Plate and Blind.
I pointed my camera at Betelgeuse, and clicked start. NINA was unable to plate solve the first exposure. It tried about 4 times before I stopped it. I went through increasing gain, picture duration, changing sky position, etc. No matter what I selected, it was unable to plate solve. I tried for over an hour before I gave up. I need some suggestions on what to do the next night I have an opportunity to get out.
