Hi everyone
Do we have an easy way of entering the centre frame coordinates for 'nothing' from kstars into the ekos scheduler?
Let's say I want to enter the centre of this frame:

You mean the issue is with the non-user-friendly conversion from decimal to hour system?

Ah, perhaps that's because your RA/DEC fields do not update the edited job actually? If that is the case, you can work around by updating your RA/DEC fields, then modifying another field before applying changes.

Hi and thanks or your reply
No, not an issue. I just wondered if there's an alternative to having to find the centre of the frame which shows 'empty spac e' without having to write the coordinates of it into a file (or with pen and paper) and then copy it into the scheduler. I was thinking that I'd missed a point and click solution. e.g. in cdc we can right click on a chart > copy coodinates and then paste them wherever...

ah copy coordinate can be useful. What's the format for CDC when you paste it? JNow + J2000 coords?

Right click or double tap anywhere on the chart > copy coordinates
