(Re-)Framing and Rotating #45193

I often want to revisit an object to gather more data or just continue capturing after having modified or changed the optical train for whatever reason.

Getting to same position is working good using Solve & Slew, but how do you handle rotation? SGP and N.I.N.A for example offer a nice interface to a manual rotator, i.e. they calculate the angle difference and prompt you to rotate the camera manually by a given amount. You acknowledge your input and the process loops until the frame is within the specified range.

How can I do this reliably with EKOS? There is the Field <strong>Rot</strong> in Solution Coordinates in the Solver/Alignment Module, but this doen't seem to indicate the actual angle relative to the angle of the solved image.
