    Default AstroTortilla....need help



    I downloaded AstroTortilla and can't seem to get it to work. It will capture an image but won't solve. I haven't really looked into it. Do I need to download a database and keep it on my laptop for solving? I guess I'm just looking for an overall view.

    I wish I could help, no one has replied to you yet, but I am sure they will shortly.

    I am impressed with your photographs, I went to your gallery!

    I am having the same problem. I can't seem to get the right index downloaded. It solved once in simulation but that was it. Here is a lengthy thread on it. Maybe we will get up and running someday.

    1) download all of the indexes - you can remove (archive) the ones you don't need later once you know what they are
    2) post an example image you are trying to solve here and I'll try and solve it for you
    3) use jpeg images for solving

    Thanks Phil, I hope I am not hi-jacking this thread but here goes. M45 is the only one that I can solve, it solves in 12.3 sec. Other M45 pics will not solve at all. The Horsehead is one that will not solve. Thanks again.

    I'm working on AstroTortilla now. Finally figured out how to solve an image already taken. Do I need to download all indexes from my FOV down to 1/10 my FOV? I started at 4011 and now working towards 4004. FOV is @ 1.8 x 1.4. Does this sound right?

    1.8 x 1.4 degrees? Mine is .85 x 1.27 degrees. I am not sure how the 1/10 FOV plays into the equation, I figured as long as your FOV was covered by x amount of indexes it woul work. As I said above, I can only solve the one image. Last night I used it live with EQMod and it recognized my scope but would not solve any images.

    I actually solved several of my images using Astrometry.net on Flickr and it comes up with roughly the same FOV. I think I got the cart before the horse. It's worked to capture and image live, but no solve. I didn't have any indexes then. I'm downloading now, it's taken up to 50 seconds and still no solve. I've only downloaded 4011-4007 though. I hope this is right. I'll keep you posted

    Hi - I downloaded both of your images and fed them into AT - they solved without a problem using index 200-09.fits - please see attached output screenshots...

    Note: I am still using the old indexes - also note the scale minimum =1 and scale maximum = 3 parameters and search radius=180. Also I am using a sigma value of 50 (which I nearly always use).

    I didn't alter your jpgs in any way.

    PS the first file took 49 seconds to solve because this was the first time I had run AT since the last reboot of my PC - a second solve of the same file took 9.1 seconds because the index data is now cached in my PC RAM.

    regards
    Phil
