Thanks again Bob. Don't get me wrong. I think Pinpoint is a very good program. I have no issues with it at all. If it is integrated with MaximDL, then that's OK with me. Back then when I ran Pinpoint on trial, I was more than satisfied. But PP comes at cost, like maximDL does, and my friend's ASTAP is freeware. (and so fast) My current situation is different. I have drained my bank account a while ago by investing in a automated dome, 10Micron mount, FF CCD camera and a Lacerta photo newton. So that puts the price-tag for GOOD software in a different perspective. Hence my trial of MaximDL. Since 10Micron mounts rely completely on well build sky models, accurate and quick platesolving is vital.
