Same error as before BUT happens when you load a CR2 file and hit "Solve" . However load the file (CR2) and hit STACK then hit "Solve Current Image" it runs ok. Then when you go back and just hit "SOLVE" on main Window you dont get the error.

ASTAP 9.288 fails when run stand alone ubuntu 18.04 amd #45087
Hello Stash,

Thanks for the feedback. This has been fixed in ASTAP version 0.9.289 for AMD64, I386 and armhf (Pi 32 bit) . The Raspberry Pi 64 bit version will follow later. With this last version something else is wrong.

See: www.hnsky.org/astap.htm for downloads.


Clear skies, Han

Fixed also the 64 bit version for Raspberry Pi. (arm64)

This was a nasty bug. The newest compiler makes a mistake when selected an higher optimisation factor.

Yep tested out 9.289 works fine now so far thanks.

Questions or observations

1. I know I can run ASTAP Platesolving from the command line - can I do the same for ASTAP live stacking ? I would like to call it from CCDCIEL script - yes I am lazy LOL

2. Users should be aware that doing a stretch of FIT or CR2 (RAW) will stop Platesolving from finding a match (well in my experience) - switching off stretching seems to work more reliably.

1) At the moment with the command line you can do two thing a) load a file in the viewer, like <strong>astap name.fit</strong> b) solve triggered by the -f parameter like <strong>astap -f name.fit</strong>. But how do you want to start and use live stacking from the command line?

2) Yes ASTAP is much more sensitive to stretching then Astrometry.net. I needs to be able to recognize and separate the brightest stars from the faint. It has no problems with exposures of 1, 2 or 300 or 100x300 seconds but you should not apply a heavy stretch on them. For the same reason the solving of heavily photo-shopped images is mostly no success. It just likes RAW. The stretching in the ASTAP viewer has no influence. That only modifies the presentation, not the data.

In comparison, Astrometry.net requires only x,y positions. You could stretch an image to pure black and white only and Astrometry.net will still be able solve it.

Hi Han

I would in the end prefer CCDCIEL to allow Live Stackin via ASTAP from the CCDCIEL Window directly but I guess that would be a good time off and only if PC thinks it would enhance his CCDCIEL. So in the mean time i would just create a script which loads and run your Live Stacking. Leave the work flow simple from one Window - CCDCIEL in this case. Its not a priority just a Wish :-)

On Stretching that backs up what I have found by trial and error :-)

That's interesting. I haven't seen it here, but I assume that ASTAP tries to read the file while it is not fully saved. If will fail and try again the next second. I will build in an quit test to avoid this

Stash,

Fixed in ASTAP version ß0.9.290. This version should skip any file in use while live stacking. I have released this version only for Win 64 bit and Linux 64 bit AMD64. The others will follow if this is successful.

Looking to your screen shot colours, the selected Bayer de-mosaic pattern is wrong. You can test and set it in tab "Stack method"

Will try and test 9.290 tonight subject to weather - thanks - getting there :-)

Han you are a star - 290 worked no errors (yet) LOL.

screen print 2 image live stack using CCDCIEL seq and live stacking in ASTAP.

And yes my focusing is out as I cant get my head around CCDCIEL Focuser process - yet!

Hi Han,

Found a little problem - if other image files( mine were left over from Astrotoaster/DSS) are present in any sub folder (or even in the selected monitored folder) ASTAP gives you "Access Violation". Removing the files or folder removes the problem.

Question on Darks - If I have dark files that do not match the temperature or any other parameter shown on the DARK TAB will they still be used in the Live Stacking process ?
