Description:   While not technically equipment, the Plate Solver is a fundamental piece of the Sequence Generator Pro experience.  Plate solving adds the ability to find the exact center of your image (down to sub arcsecond accuracy).  It also enables the Center Here and Auto Center features.  The plate solving actions (not settings) are also available in the Scope Centering Module.

In general, this tab is used to house settings and action that allow you to automatically center on a reference frame (see below).   This comes in quite handy when you need to image the same target over multiple nights or when re-centering after a meridian flip.  Once your plate solving setup is complete it is literally as simply as clicking a single button to get your target back in near exact position.

Sequence Generator Pro uses the following 3rd party software for plate solving:
