I’ve noticed on a few occasions that my platesolve fails on the first attempt but then works when it tries a second time.
I was watching the fit viewer last night when this occurred and noticed the stars were stretched out rather than points. I assume this is occurring on the first attempt after a longer slew and that the mount hasn’t had enough time to settle before the plate solving image is acquired.
I have a 10 sec Settling Time on the Mount tab in the SetupForm. Does this settling time get used before the platesolve image is acquired or is there another option I need to adjust elsewhere to introduce a delay before the platesolve image commences?
