It looks like that's the case.  Are there any plans in the works for other Plate Solvers?

Yes, I added the RA/DEC in the capture plan in 3.1.18, this was step #1.

I've started working on the building blocks for plate solving within BYE/BYN.  It's nowhere close to working, there's not even a UI yet.  I'm hoping, fingers crossed, to have something late this calendar year.

Wouldn't it be possible to integrate AllSkyPlateSolver into BYE?

I'm working on plate solving right now.  I think I should be able to upload a pre-release in about 1 to 2 weeks.  I have it working with ASTAP only for now and I'm doing final round of testing with the simulators. It's cloudy here right now so I can't test it outside.

Does AllSkyPlateSolver support dslr CR2/CR3/NEF files or only jpg and fits?

Regards,

That would be a great step for BYEOS..

Waiting for it 🤞

I'd guess that this question is rhetorical:  ASPS Docs list JPG and FITS, and internally converts JPG to FITS before feeding into the embedded Astrometry.net engine.  For BYE/BYN purposes, it's good that all DSLRs embed a JPG Image within the CR2/NEF RAW Files.

This is Great News!!  I'm sure that you've been able to Plate Solve using archived Images from several of the DSLRs you've previously Tested for BYE/BYN.

I just finished uploading BYE 3.2.0-RC1 with in-app plate solving (using ASTAP) and also some integration with Carte du Ciel and Telescopius.

This is only a first release candidate and I was only able to test with simulators.
