GPS, focusing, Landscape and Mosaiking #36980
A flurry of feature requests:

1) remove focuser tab when not needed: if there are no focuser selected in the device list (could be my next purchase!) of INDI would be nice to remove the corresponding tab in EKOS and remove the option from the schedule. Leads to often starting jobs in scheduler with the "focuser" check box on.
2) GPS from DSLR: DSLR cameras have GPS sensors in them. is there a way to extract the data from the exif (or some other way) to include as a new GPS driver?
3) automated mosaiking: could be nice to create an automatic mosaic schedule of an object based on the sensor size. e.g. large objects like m31, Rosetta, North america, etc often are larger than the FoV of sensor/tube combination. (same is true for the Moon/sun) the Guider/scheduler could work together to create a composite of n tiles
4) Horizon: would be nice to borrow the Landscape feature of Stellarium to build an horizon line from 360 images instead of "simpler polygons". (at least for the gnomonic projection (see view from my terrasse as an example)
