Thank you very much for this video Gilles!

I really appreciate you took the time to make the video. I could watch it with the subtitles on and translated to spanish (youtube tool). Is now much clearer for me. I'd have to try it once the weather cooperates here.

This is one of the best responses I've received on the astronomy forums. B)

Best regards,

Alfredo

What i said before about limitation to 60-90° is wrong :
In fact, you can also use radius option of solver to perform such an alignment (but it is slower...)
Here, it will solve within 90-30° range :

Question: I have downloaded the astrometry.net local copy to my laptop. How can Ekos to be told to use it?

Use the checkbox "local" on alignment panel
