Horizon panorama image orientation

Email: bjheafield1@sheffield.ac.uk

I am a PhD student at Sheffield University, in England, where I am using SkySafari 5 Pro to examine archaeoastronomy at Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Age monuments.
I have managed to upload a horizon panorama onto SkySafari but there doesn't appear to be any way or orientating the image with any precision.
So I am writing to ask if you could build this kind of capability into image upload to allow me to set the exact geographical orientation, azimuth and declination of 360 degree images.
It would be tremendously useful to my research work and that of others at the university if you could make this improvement.
Many thanks.

    Barry,

    I responded to this request on Thursday via email.  I'm really not sure why what we already have is not sufficient.

    Hi Bill,

    I was just responding to a couple of emails from Keiron Smith asking me to put my query on to the forum, that was all.

    I'm sure what you have already may be sufficient for most purposes but where the precise orientation of a prehistoric monument on screen is required it would certainly help a lot if a full range of settings for the imported image could be incorporated into the programme. It would just be easier and more accurate.

    Barry.
