plate solving - first time #40918
Hi all,

Tried plate solving for the first time and it worked! I had the RPi with Stellarmate on my home network connected with ethernet and ran Kstars/Ekos on my laptop.
However only with option <solver> marked it actually solved in about 3 iterations. I did connect astrometry in aux in the indy device manager but when choosing the option <remote> the solving immediately failed..
Any idea?

Cheers Arnold

So, one step further. Read about the index files and since I added the Tycho catalog I found that I need some index files - see pic.

Then when I click the checkmark to download the index file I get an error warning - see pic

I need permission but how. The password isn't asked......
