Summary0001925: Log entry "Planetarium Error" without any error
DescriptionI made a image in 4x4bin for easy detection and framing. Sometimes I use platesolving the see were I am :-) using Skycharts.
This works really good. I like it.

Here is the log. You see, I fired platesolving two times. There is a log entry "Planetarium Error" without any real error.
Planetarium is connected, frame or image is displayed right. No Problem for me, just a notification for you.

I cannot reproduce the problem. I need to add more information to this error message so we can know where it fail.

But I remark you where looping images when running the plate solving. Is it possible the solved image is replaced by a new capture before it send it to Skychart?
Can you try with a single preview, without loop, to see if it make the same error. Or to test in daytime load a saved image from a previous night.

The next version will show the error message from the planetarium:

Please test when it is available.

I will use this version on my next astro session. I will report the error message.

Do you mean I should not loop exposures during platesolve?

At the moment I got no image on my laptop to solve with the INDI Simulator running and looping. Cannot reproduce it. I will do this next time under the stars.

Normally solving with the loop must work but I never do that because this is less efficient.
After solving, the solved image is loaded to the viewer and any other action do not need to call again. For example you can solve and send the frame to skychart, then if you select to send the image or Sync it not has to solve again.
But if you loop the solved image is continuously replaced by a new unsolved image so every action require a call to

And a possible bug here is we send the new unsolved image to skychart.
But the new version will give more information about the error.

I cannot reproduce "Planetarium Error" while looping exposures with the new version of ccdciel. If I got an error in the future, I will report it. This can be closed. Thanks

OK I close for now. Thank you for testing.

I think I have reproduced the problem.
The error occur when an object is selected in CdC before you send the frame or image. In this case there is some extra text send in the command response that make the comparison to fail.

This is fixed by this change:
