I was wondering if anyone was using Prism's automatic astroid finding features to process other data set's?

A friend of my in the local club gave me some FITS files from the PANSTARRS survey. People can apply and search for asteroids using Astrometrica. I was hoping that I would be able to process some of this data using prism.

Unfortunately Prism does not like something in the fits data, and gives an error " ERROR CAUTION : Exposure date must be valid "

@Hamza Touhami Would you like to have a look at the data?

you can actually batch edit fits files under the File, maybe this will resolve the issue. Yes, I'd like t take a stab at the data please and thank you.

@Hamza Touhami Please let me know if that dropbox location doesn't work for you. I can send you the data either via dropbox or email etc.

I am able to plate solve all the samples, and I can blink them, I'm just not understanding why the Asteroid finding tool is erroring out.

@Hamza Touhami - Hey hope things are going well. I was just curious if you had a change to download that PANSTARRS data I posted?
