I did an update the other day and today when I attempted to plate solve I get the error NOMAD catalog not found? When I go to the catalog and atlas tab I don't see a way to download it? Any suggestions?

Okay, how about this. How do you install a catalog so you can plate solve offline with Prism? Which should one install?

Good morning Walter and thanks for the great question

An easy way to set up your catalogs is to download them from my site under the downloads section and put them in a convenient folder. Then, in PRISM, go to settings > Star catalog path settings. Choose the right tab and point PRISM to the folder where you put them on your computer.

I personally use the UCAC4 with great success, it is available on my site for download.

Thanks.

I was looking into that, or setting a local copy of Astrometry.net

What is the url to your site?

Hello

For local astrometry.net solution install ansvr-setup-0.20.exe (https://adgsoftware.com/ansvr/). It takes longtime to update catalogs, so be patient.. :) .

Once it over, change settings in prism accordingly (means without internet and API key).
