Not sure if this is the right place to ask. Is there a way to display the local meridian in Kstars? It would be nice to show it so I can see where the scope is in relation to the current meridian. Thanks!

This is probably a kstars request,.

Does the option exist and I have not found it?

Turning on the Alt-Az grid will show the local Meridian. I'm not sure if there is another way.

I agree the south direction could be emphasized on, when trying to understand when a flip will occur, but the current feature does the job.

And.... it's done. Should be available in the next release. It's disabled by default and must be enabled in KStars Settings --> Guide --> Show Local Meridian
