I am using a new ASiair pro with my setup and am running into trouble plate solving (and thus also cannot polar align).
ASiair Pro (verson 1.5.1, firmware 6.92, iOS)
Mount: SkyWatcher HEQ5 (connected via EQMod)
Main Camera: Canon 50D DSLR (connected via USB 2.0)
Main Scope: William Optics ZenithStar73 (430mm focal length) with Flat73A flattener
Guide Camera: ASI120MM-S (connected via USB 3.0)
Guide Scope: William Optics 50mm guide scope (270mm focal length)
It was my first time using the asiair and it looks on the surface like everything is working properly. I can connect to the mount, cameras, etc. Slewing the mount works fine. taking pictures works fine. i can focus successfully, etc.
When it comes to hitting the plate solve button, regardless of which camera I am using as my main camera, the software immediately displays a failure notification, indicating that 0 stars were found).
I have looked online and there are several discussions around plate solving failures, but most of them seem to have stars found, and the failure is instead related to the focal length put in to the camera settings.
I tried this with both cameras, and have tried numerous values for focal length and all of them have the same result of 0 stars found. I also tried with 0mm in the focal length for it to try and auto-detect. I believe my issue isn't related to the focal length at all because it would seem that the star detection algorithm would be independent of this.
The images I am getting in preview right before doing the plate solve are good images and in focus, with many stars very clearly visible, so I am not sure what the problem is.
I also tried plate solving with the camera pointed both very close to the celestial pole and also pretty far from it in case that had anything to do with it, but i got the same result every time.
Has anyone observed this behavior? I am really bummed because I am pretty heavily relying on the asiair to get polar aligned and so i'm pretty stuck without this capability.
Any help would be much appreciated!
