Possibly a dumb question but I am lost here. I have the full github download, all the files are in place, I figured out how to calibrate the camera and run test images. How do I run the lost in space solutions after calibration for any image?

Hi - should be viewed as an example which can be customized to fit your needs. I have it configured to open a python eval loop on port  8010, which you can connect to in order to command it to solve images. An example of this can be seen here:

The positions of all of the stars found are given in both the ECI and body frames - see, along with their brightness

typically you would use this as an input to a kalman filter along with gyro measurements to get current position
