Thank Megiddo.

i use astrometry in Kstars without problem with my C8 ;-).
But, like the sky is cloundy now, i play with kstars/ekos.
I would like to use it with my dslr when i take un picture in wide field (lens at 20mm) and drive the gear to the good place. But i think the problem is with the simulator. I'm persuaded that work fine in real world.

Picard created a new topic ' Align module does not like wide fields.' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

I tried,with the ccd and telescope simulators, to simulate a dslr and resolve a wide field (20°x30°). I configured the telescope simulator with focal length to 40mm. The ccd has the sames characteristics of my dslr, 6000x4000 and pixel to 3.7µ.

I can take a photo with the capture module and I see a lot of stars.

But with the align module the image returned is completely grey (no star appear) and the solver doesn't resolve anything. The fov calculated is very strange (1.87e+3' x 1.2e+3').
If a use the load & slew I can resolve the field, the telescope move to the target and take a new photo but this last stay grey also.

It's a issue of the align module ?

I done some more tests with and without image compression (from the indi panel).

When I capture image without compression, I see the fits file used by the solver in the /tmp directory :


and the log show that he use the file :

In the /tmp directory, the compress fits file doesn't exist and only a file, without extension, that is the uncompress fits :


Someone can do a test and confirm, or not, the issue ?
