Great! I also tested it and works great :)

Thanks a lot for the very fast implementation (upon the fantastic script itself) :)

One thing that I'm even newer at than astrophotography as a hobby is PixInsight for post processing, but as I learn, I continue to run into absolute spellbinding wonderment. Today was one of those days... when I found your Image Solver and Annotation scripts. They were intuitive and easy for even a beginner such as myself to use and I'm simply amazed.

Thank you so very much for this tool.

Cheers,
Clayton

Hello Andres Pozo
I'm helping a friend of mine to include other catalogs in the script like Lynd's and HH, but doesn't works, could you give us some help?
one question ... for some objects which cover large areas wider than the field of the image, the subject could be still annotated but can't see the borders neither the name because write it in the center isn't possible?
Many thanks, and my congrats for this useful script!

Hi Elio.
I'm answering from a phone so I can not give a detailed answer. You can read the message #76 of this thread http://pixinsight.com/forum/index.php?topic=3966.msg28257#msg28257.

If you still have doubts the next Monday I can try to solve them.

Andres.

I have made a custom catalog for use with the Annotation script and it does not appear to work. i.e. no plots are made.

The catalog is of globular clusters in M31. Can someone try this out please.

The catalog is here:
http://www.mikeoates.org/tmp/beta_m31_globular_clusters.txt

This is based on data from:

Thanks,

Mike

Your custom catalog seems to have the right ascension in hours not degrees. You can multiply it by 15 and test again.

Andr?s,

Opps :) silly me, thank you for pointing out my error, I knew it would be something I had done wrong.

Works a treat when corrected.

Thank you,

Mike

Thanks for the great Scripts!
With the AnnotateImage script, is it possible to rename custom catalogs?  I have created two catalogs for LDN and LBN objects but can't distinguish between the two in the script.

Or is there another place to download ready-made catalogs for this script?

You are right. I have to think about this. Meanwhile you can distinguish between them clicking in one of them and looking to the file field.

You can make these files using a spreadsheet or downloading an online catalog. Please read this:

I've used the script in the past with no problems, but, now I have an issue. When I run the script the annotated image is produced, but, all the text is mirrored around the horizontal axis. Some processing details: I attempted to plate solve with ImageSolver, but, it fails. I took the same image and plate solved with TheSkyX with no issue. I then re-opened in PixInsight. I've atgtached a jpeg of the annotated image and a screen shot shot showing the FITS header.

Hi Gordon.

It is very probable that the problem is with the coordinate origin of the FITS file. Please check if the problem is fixed changing the value in "Format explorer | FITS | Edit Preferences | Coordinate origin" to bottom-up or up-bottom.

In any case, ImageSolver should be able to solve this image. What was the problem?

Have you tried to solve it with ImageSolver after solving with the other application? If ImageSolver solves it now, probably the problem was the starting parameters (coordinates and resolution) of the image. If it still doesn't solve it, you can try to activate the noise reduction or changing the magnitude of the catalog.

Also, remember that if the image is mirrored you must select Triangles in "Advanced Parameters | Alignment algoritm".

Andr?s.
