Equatorial coordinates of cursor position
« on: 2014 November 15 06:33:45 »
Hi,
I recently discovered the image solver script and find it very useful. I suppose there is no way to see the equatorial coordinates of the current cursor position, right? Below on the left I just see the pixel coordinates... Is there any way to change this?
Best regards
Christof

Not that I am aware of.  Usually once an image is solved and has the WCS headers I would just load it in to something like Aladin (http://aladin.u-strasbg.fr/) and do any analysis or annotation from there.  Amazing to find out what you have captured sometimes.

Ok, that works, thank you. I would however prefer a solution inside Pixinsight. Any other solutions?

You can use ImageSolver and AnnotateImage. After solving the image with ImageSolver, open it with AnnotateImage. AnnotateImage has a preview mode which shows the equatorial coordinates of the cursor.
