Trouble Plate solving Astrobin website

26 Mar, 2020 09:49
I uploaded a new photo but there is apparently something wrong with plate solving on astrobin website it has been in the middle for over 12 hours now - message remains in the middle on "plate solving started in the background" it was previously solved on less than 2 minutes. what is wrong or do I do something wrong?

Click on the job id in your technical card:

This page tells you that it's still queued. I think in the past few days has been particularly flaky smile

OK thanks for the helpful info. so we have to wait and see.

You can restart it if you go to "Edit -> Plate-solving settings" and just save the form. Maybe it's stuck in the queue there and that'll help!

It's not working for me either. I tried it on myself and it was solved without a problem.

Hi Jantje,
I restarted your plate-solving on AstroBin and now it worked quickly. I guess they had trouble at some point which caused some jobs to be frozen in the queue.

Hi Salvatore,

Thank you, you are the best  smile

Hi Salvatore
I also have the same problem for this image

Hi Geoff,
I restarted your job too and it's now processing. For the next time, this happens, you can also do it yourself using the "Edit -> Plate-solving settings" and saving the form without changes.

Tomorrow I will add a "Restart plate-solving" menu entry so it's clearer for others.

PS: I just read on the Google Group that they changed the queue processing algorithm just recently but from the description, it sounds like on average the jobs should start faster 🤷‍♂️

Thanks Salvatore. All good now.
