VPhot Plate solving -- for Gier

Hi Gier:

I have a couple of mystery images. VPhot refused to plate solve them. So, I got an astrometric solution in SkyX and tried again. Still no plate solving. Might I share them with you to solve the mystery?

Btw: Other images from the same night were successfully solved, thus the mystery.

Hi Ed!

No problem, it takes more to offend me than that :-)

Glad it worked out. But sometimes some images does not plate solve, even though they look just fine. I have not figured out why. It is a complicated procedure I guess, and lots of parameters that can affect the outcome.

Thanks Geir

Thanks, Geir.  No doubt things are complicated enough that "stuff" just happens fro time to time. :)

Geir: I just tried again and it plate solved. No disregard.
