Having trouble platesolving my wide field Milky Way mosaic image. I'm able to get to it to solve on direct upload to astrometry with rough initial coordinates and a liberal 30 pixel specification on star position error. Correctly solved image here. Unable to get my astrobin image platesolved even after I edit platesolving settings and give it the right parameters. |
I'd appreciate any tips on making this work.

|Hey Arvind, despite the fact that your mosaic is fantastic, i would try to resolve the image with default settings - maybe wait a day or two. Astrometry.Net should be able to solve a widefield like this without any hints - you've proven it by uploading it manually. Maybe something went wrong…|

Thanks Michael. I think the problem here is the distortion introduced by mosaicing two wide field images. Only able to get it to solve on Astrometry when I increase the star positional error parameter. Unfortunately I can't set this through astrobin.

Very interesting! This makes totally sense.
