Adding Ecc and HFR in #3 would be most welcome.

Same in 3.5.5 and nightly's. If this is not a bug but a design feature I think someone needs to rethink this. I work around this by closing the just created FITS Viewer window
to force the recalculation. I particularly NEED the eccentricity calc. to watch for focus problems or sky turbulence.

I too, am using current 3.5.5 beta git pulled and locally built on my Rpi4. Same problem - but last night I had a thought. If we turn off the display of stars in the sky atlas could we then
force the right click behavior to only consider finding non-star objects?

While Messier objects do have NGC numbers if the NGC number is referenced first in the database that is the number that is
used when imaging (camera tab file name title). When I slew to M83 and start taking images the files should be named M_83...
not NGC_...

And yes I know I can rename the file title field but that is just one more thing I must remember to do.

Thanks Valentin,
Tried it with the same crash. I sent you my kstars log possibly with more info. Take heart I'd bet I'm doing something wrong and not you.
