I'm seeing an issue where the Polar Alignment tool reports that it's disabled because the FOV is too small (it isn't). And it doesn't actually seem to be disabled, but the option that I want (manual sleww) is disabled. I'm trying to use my guide scope (~200mm focal length) with a meade LPI-G camera (standard AR0130 sensor) which has an FOV that greatly exceeds the minimum listed. Has anyone seen this before? Am I doing something obviously wrong?
Also, I was able to use the Polar Alignment tool using the same exact equipment two nights ago and it worked like a dream. I was using a different computer, though.
I had this problem too and blamed it on a new camera that I was testing. I was not even able to start the PAA process as "start" was greyed out. My FOV was much larger than the minimal FOV so did not make sense.
I was running a nightly build. The next day (26th Sept) I updated the nightly build and tested using my normal camera and at least the start button in the GUI is usable to start the automated process. However the FOV disabled warning persists.
Unfortunately I have not had a chance to test it in the field.
As the latest updates have not resolved the erroneous FOV related PAA disabled warning, the problem is not solved.
Yes, unfortunately I hit the problem again tonight so the problem is not resolved. I was using a guide camera tonight with an even larger sensor than last night (IMX178 vs AR0130). I think the fact that the issue appeared to be solved last night had more to do with me disconnecting my computer to bring it in the house for the update and reconnecting everything. My mount was still aligned from last night, so I didn't spend any time investigating.
