I have been trying to polar align with asiair for the second night. I always get plate solving errors.
500mm F6.25 telescope
As I found out, I never had Polaris in the frame but Yildun I read here that Polaris is not a must have and plate solve should find out where it is.
I tried different exposures and isos but the result is always "Plate Solve failed", the only thing that changes is the number of stars. This varies from 1000 to 80 stars. I have also tried "New Plate Solve" in the settings.
Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I'm a bit stumped.
Sample image I tried to plate solve on and the location in Stellarium where the frame is located is in the attachment.
