I agree

Plate solves that have not completed.

I have  two maybe three images where the plat solve has not completed in almost 24 hours.  I have looked to see if there is something I need to do. But I'm baffled. I would appreciate any help or suggestions.

Almost every time I fail a plate solve it's because the focal length is somehow wrong.  If you haven't already, double check your focal length/sensor size, and also make sure exposure is focused and not out of collimation if applicable.

I've deleted them and then reposted the image and the all plat solved without issues. So ????

Probably astormetry.net had a problem during your first uploads? This is the service that AstroBin is using for plate solving and - in my experience - by far the most common reason why an image an AstroBin could not be plate solved.

Oh and by the way - if you want AstroBin to tell Astrometry.net to retry the plate solve, you can simply click on "edit -> plate solving settings -> save". AstroBin restarts the plate solve then, no need to reupload the images.  smile
