Summary0002009: Suggestion/feature request

would it be possible to import the PA when creating a new sequence or object?
At the moment it imports RA, DEC and Name.

I would use it this way:
Take a pic, plate solve to get position and camera PA
Export frame to Planetarium.
Examine frame in Planetarium to adjust composition - including adjusting frame PA
Export RA DEC PA and name to new target or new sequence.

Slew/rotate object to adjusted composition.

TagsNo tags attached.

This can be useful but it require a lot of change both in Skychart and CCDciel.

What I can probably do for the next version is to set the PA when the position is set from the current image.

thanks Patrick, this would be particularly useful when framing/using an Off Axis Guider to pic up a guidestar.
