PlateSolve2 is a good plate solver but can’t write the plate solution to the FITS header using standard keywords. To achieve this I made a simple FITS file viewer HNS_FV which can call the PlateSolve2 program and writes the found plate solution to the FITS file header using standard keywords. Working of the program: Load the FITS file in the viewer Press the “Solve” button Is the solution found press “Save” button. In principle it should be possible to rename the program as Platesolve2 and call it instead of PlateSolve2. The solution will then be written automatically to the FITS file header. This option is not fully tested. The plate solution is read from the APM file produced by PlateSolve2. There is a big variation in FITS file keywords. If this very first test version (v0.0.0b1) doesn’t work, please send my the FITS file for testing. Will work on a version which can load PNG and JPG files.
