Platesolving smaller than 0.4 degrees fov

Post by jbradsh » Thu Jan 02, 2020 1:29 am

I have an sct/focal reducer giving 1200mm f6 and field a bit smaller than 20 minutes — cant do smaller planetary nebulas and galaxies using my 178MMC due small chip small pixels due to limitation of platesolving. I realise the built in database would rise a lot.
Only option I can see for the present would be buy a bigger chip with small pixels to get field over 0.4 degrees and crop for smaller 178-like field when imaging. (But not ready to buy another yet!)

With the new version of ASIAIR App, it will support plate sloving range from 0.2-33 degree.

Re platesolving down to 0.2 degrees - is that only with the new asiair unit with more memory or is that included in upgrade of original asiair?

just found a post by sam saying it is only asiair pro that goes down to 0.2 degrees —- big pity!
