So it turns out that the update to the focal length and aperture didn't update the FOV in the align module even though the option to auto update was on. It was coming up with a 55 x 38 or so value for my crop nikon camera with a 1000mm focal length and the correct value is 83.2 x 55.5. Submitting the image to astrometry.net gave the correct FOV and once it was entered and the scope was slewed to the right position it solved the image. I can't test the solve and slew at the moment as its daylight but my image from last night solves fine and does so pretty quickly. Not sure if this is a bug or not.
