Display using different coordinate system from that used for grid

I would like to be able to display the current coordinates of the pointing direction in any coordinate system I like (or even better, multiple coordinate systems) irrespective of the coordinate system used for the grid.

 

To be more specific, if I use the alt/az grid then I would like to still be able to display (in the top left) the current pointed direction in RA/Dec, ideally in addition to displaying it in alt/az.

    Geoff,

    I can add this to the list of requests but I doubt it will happen anytime soon if at all.

    What exactly are you trying to accomplish?  Maybe there is another way.

    Mainly I want to be able to know where I am pointing in equatorial coordinates even when displaying the chart in the alt/az coordinate system. Being able to see both together would be even better.

    OK, thanks.  I'll see what I can do.
