Problem Adding a New Scope

iTelescope's T18 is not currently in VPHOT. I tried to add an entry for it but it is not working. For the TELESCOP keyword I used 'ACP->iTelescope.Net T18'. Plate solving is not working (i.e. WCS is red), so I assume my entry is not being matched to the image. When I look at the other iTelescope VPOT entries they use GRAS0xx for keyword, but when I look at the FIT headers of those images they say something similar to 'ACP->.....

Is there something unique about how iTelescope headers are processed? Or am I making a mistake in my entry somehow?

It should be GRAS0xx. That said, those scopes are a bit special, and a system admin must register them. 

So I have added T18. I do not have any images to test though, so I'd appreciate it if you could give me feedback on how the images plate solve.

Geir,
 

My iT18 images now successfully plate solve.  FYI, they also worked when I made my own entry using GRAS018 as the TELESCOP value.

Thanks!
