Mike - you adjusted the pixel size to 5 in ImageSolver and it worked? I get a fail using that. It's saying it only found 2 stars. Were there any other changes?

Greg

The attached screen shoot shows the settings. I changed the catalog also.

(thanks to everyone for looking at this)

Odd. I think I've copied the PCC settings faithfully and I still fail.

Ok in my first posting I said I solved the image in ImageSolver script, not PCC. I show those settings which I used the catalog UCAC3, not the automatic setting. With the image plate solved I the used PCC only to color calibrate. I used the button'Acquire from Image' to populate the PCC settings.

The second time I went back, reset PCC, entered my original ImageSolver settings that I used the first time to plate solve and everything works. I just now did the same thing with the same results. Here is the screenshot.

I must be missing something. Below are two screen captures:

 - Using the settings Mike did with ImageSolve script. It fails every time.
 - Using the same settings with "Show Stars" checked under Advanced settings in ImageSolve. On the left is the screen shot from the first post, on right is the xisf file.

In the case of the show stars output, the difference is interesting.

Greg try setting the Image Solver script to 1500mm. I just realized that ImageSolver fills in the solved parameters after solving. I used 1500 in the setup, not the 1550.56 in the screen shot. Also you can try PCC with the settings that I showed just above.

I could replicate successfully running ImageSolve first with the parameters in the earlier screenshot and then PCC works (didn't realize that ImageSolve coordinates stick to the image and PCC will use those).
