Observatory 1.6.5

Earlier this week blind plate solving temporarily stopped working in Observatory because of a server change at astrometry.net that made the use of a secure connection mandatory. This change was swiftly reversed, but today we released Observatory 1.6.5 with minor enhancements that include the use of a secure connection for astrometry.net.


Release notes.

Observatory 1.6.3

Check the Mac App Store, because we’ve just released Observatory 1.6.3.

It supports macOS 12 Monterey, and resolves an issue with SDSS image downloads in Virtual Observatory. This was caused by a change in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Archive service. It also addresses a pesky issue with the histogram. When adjusting it, Observatory could occasionally stop responding.
