AstroTortilla is a helper application that brings plate solving to your astrophotography workflow.
With plate solving, AstroTortilla can on its own figure out where your telescope is pointed.
This enables you to automatically and quickly do things like
AstroTortilla is made possible by the Astrometry.net plate solver engine.
The software is designed to be expandable and contributions for supporting more software are welcome.
The FAQ contains some answers to the most frequently asked questions.
2016-08-14: Version 0.8 test release 1, bug fixes and Nebulosity 4 support.
2014-05-31: Version 0.7 released, containing bug fixes.
2013-09-19: Version 0.6 released, support for BackyardEOS 3 and Nebulosity 3.1 added
2013-07-10: The astrometry.net Cygwin mirror in installer now points to a new server and installing should work again without hacking.
2013-04-20: Issues with log window solved in 0.5.2 release.
2013-04-10: 4100 and 4200 series index files can now be downloaded with the new 0.5.1 installer. You can delete the problematic 4000 series index files manually before upgrading (installer will not do any destructive changes). The index files are typically under C:\Cygwin\usr\share\astrometry\data\ -directory.
2013-04-01: astrometry.net just released 4200 series index files that correct a bug in the 4000 series files. The 4000 series apparently didn't have the whole sky covered evenly. Additionally, a 4100 series generated from the Tycho catalog is available for faster solutions of wide field frames.
