  • Great peice of software !! The scope is right on the target within 1mn !! Thanks to the dev team

  • Very nice software.. BUT ! I have a question.. Where are the *.FITS ( which are downlaoded at time of installation ) files stored under Windows 10 ? since i am searching for them, but can't find them.. Thank you Martin

  • I heard about this program on various astrophotography list servers, so I decided to try it out. This is one of the best programs in my astrophotography arsenal for the moment. I had it up and running in about 20 minutes after I downloaded the 4100 set of plate solves. Incredible piece of software. It used to be very frustrating to center the target on those small ccd chips. No longer a problem and the program has a polar-align helper, to boot. Whoever wrote this program is a genius.

  • For a free software this provides an indispensible functionality, allowing me to quickly align and drift aligh my mount. Yes, it takes some time to configure but when you are done its the best

  • The best and only plate solving software. Setup is super easy following one of the tutorials online, once setup it just works and completely cuts out any setup time in terms of alignment, and automatically centers every object. Just utterly brilliant.
