Arcsecond per pixel setup question


Blair MacDonald
 

Anyone know what the arcsecond per pixel setup in the file menu is used for?

Hi Blair;

  Does ImagesPlus do plate solving?

Not to my knowledge, which is why I'm curious about the setup function?

I think it's just a tool to work out the arcsec/px for your rig, i.e. just a useful stat, but I don't think it gets used anywhere in IP; at least I've never seen anything that uses it...

Hi Blair;

  I just installed the free version and I see that it has Camera control with focus capability. Do you think it could have something to do with focusing?

I found this information into the header of FITS files created by IPCC.
I suspect that IP will do this for DSLR filles when it's converting
from RAW/NEF to FITS.

I'm no longer imaging with my DSLR so I can't verify this.

In the Star Shape tool you select the profile you are using for your image.  Then the arcsecond/pixel is displayed.
It must be used for the some of the statistics displayed in that tool (and maybe others.)
