When trying to plate solve a friend’s image, I get a message that I need a certain plugin but can’t find it. Please advise!

Also, I already have all the Astronometry files installed with ansvr for blind solving. Can this be used with Prism. Thanks!

Yes, the catalog installer from Andy Galasso can find the catalog files as long as you point the software to it them. For the plugin, please use this link : http://dl.hyperion-astronomy.com/Astrom ... 017%29.exe

Hi Hamaza I try to download de ascom Astrometry.net plug-in but the link doesn’t work,sorry I’m not an expert with computers so can you upload again and explain me where to put it. Prism is fantastic program and make even a person like me without experience in astronomy or computer skills and with not much time, enjoy to be outside with a telescope .
Thanks for now bye
