    I have read the instructions but am unable to configure Pinpoint in a Maxim DL demo version.
    Unable to set path, remove hot pixels, set pixel scale, they remain greyed out.
    I am sure it is an error on my part as everything else seems to be working well.

    The RA and DEC windows are open but I cannot populate them with any info.
    What am I missing here ?

    Thank you

    Peter

    Did you click the "Path..." button to select a path to your Guide Star Catalog?

    Do you have an image opened? You can not edit anything unless you have an image opened.

    Thanks Tim, that was it. I assume it has to be a FITS file?
    I successfully solved a 10 sec exposure of M42, now to figure out how to slew the scope.
    Astrometric Resync, correct via slew?

    This is going much better than my previous max point adventure :)

    Yes the working format in MaxIm DL is FITS.
