I am using Darks, FLat, Bias.

I get this message:

Failed on all 33 frames.

I know the light subs are good.  Shot with  ASI294MC Pro Cooled to -10.

I can run everything through Nebulosity and the image comes out great.

I have run other images through APP with no problem, this just started 2 nights ago.   Tonight with all new subs it again failed.

I have set the (Kapa) down to 1.5 after reading some other post on the subject, but it did not help.

Can you show me one of these failed lights? Just upload a stretch here. Thanks.

Thank you! So the first thing I see is that it's not in focus, so maybe APP disregards many. Could you try to set the pattern recognition from quadrilaterals to triangles (Tab 4) and see of that works?

I know the focus may be a tad off but I would think not that bad.

APP ran some subs the other day that were kind of terrible.

Well, sorry to say but the focus is pretty off. The FWHM is about 17, while normally you should be around 2-3 most of the time. Could you upload a second of the frames that failed? I can then see if I do get them registered as the one above, APP did find enough stars to do that.

Also, did you change any other settings or are these all at the default?

All other settings at default.

I used the focus assist in the ASIAIR.   I have a focus mask on the way.  Hope it gets here before my trial runs out.

Thanks you for the speedy replies and help.

You can ask for an extension to your trial if you want, if you need that bit of extra time to test it that's fine.

I will do that.  I think my trial ends in just a few days, will be after the 15th before I can purchase it.

From what I have seen, I like it.
