Tried couple of times. Always stuck in background solving state.

Thanks!

Hi,

Sometimes it happens, astrometry.net  (the free third party service that does the plate solving) can be busy or undergoing maintenance.  Right now if you go to nova.astrometry.net you get a 503 - service unavailable after a long wait, so it is probably capacity problems.

One suggestion, the plate-solving requests queued at server side should have a timeout - at least report "Plate solving failed" - better than let the progress bar hanging there the whole day.  smile
