Cleanup with coordinates? #51391
EKOS currently uses a variety of coordinates. Some are J2000, some are Jnow, and nowhere except for the mount control window there is an option to use both.
Am I the only one who finds this annoying? Any ideas what is best to do?

Most mounts use JNow so this is what is mostly used throughout Ekos. J2000 are only used for target coordinates in a file for example where we need to use them. The manual focus window supports any epoch if you want to go to a specific area in the sky map. What's the issue now?

For example the Scheduler uses J2000 and Align module uses Jnow, the FITS viewer doesn't report what it uses. I also have problems analyzing the logs since log entries vary also.

Wouldn't it be better if we make it configurable and use it everywhere consistently.

It's not a big issue, but currently it's not optimally solved.
