Agree that this is also a matter of perspective, I wouldn’t have thought my use case was unique. I have been thinking about it and the other easy gain is for those of us using autofocus. It makes even more sense when you consider this as it further simplifies and “ad-hoc” workflow as by populating the target in this manner, SGP and the plate solve engine will focus the camera sync and re-center the mount automatically.
I would think that “Use current” would be a label for the button in the target setting window, which you could then use the “Center Now” option or just add to the sequence.
I think, short of the feature being added, this may be the way I’ll operate as it give me a way of transferring the coordinates and re-slewing without switching back and forward between applications.
Maybe the additional feature button would make more sense being included in the focus target module, where the “Set Target Position” would set the target position or add a target to the sequence. Or even an additional button here “Copy Target position to Target position” That’s not a label for a button that would cause any confusion at all, right? * SIC*
Remember this is for a setup for a single target run on a mobile rig with no external connectivity.
Buzz, it’s not quite there as I’d then have to re-slew and repeat the process unfortunately, I’m trying to reduce the manual intervention.
Got it! If I’m that close I can nudge the frame manually, Can’t say I’ve either encountered or noticed this before…
