Re: Setting up a local copy of Astrometry.net

Ahh! Thanks for the heads up. I imagined that it did the same thing as the on-line version, especially since the output screen says that an image has been retrieved just as in the on-line version. This is a confusion in the program. It really isn't a local version of the Astronomy.net plate-solver. ...

Re: Setting up a local copy of Astrometry.net

Yes. Just as the remote server does. Is that not what the local engine does?

Re: Setting up a local copy of Astrometry.net

Sorry to say, but the new plug-in makes no difference. The solved image will not load in Prism using ansvr. According to the log, the plate-solve works, but the image never appears. I have tried the program on two computers with the same results. I have checked for conflicts using the netstat comman...

Re: Setting up a local copy of Astrometry.net

Thanks.

When I double click on that file I get a momentary opening of the command prompt screen which closes before I can paste anything into it.

Re: Setting up a local copy of Astrometry.net

Having set up the local copy according to directions, I find that the plate-solving proceeds to the end but never opens the plate-solved image. Nor does it ask if I want to sync to the center of the plate-solved image. This whole process works fine using the Astrometry.net remote server. Any advise?...
