"Flip" Orientation per Configurable FOV "Rings"

Hi,

I would love the ability to set the flip orientation(s) i.e. "None, Horz, Vert, Both" for each configurable FOV "Rings" or even the default FOVs. 

In this way as I zoom the application with my fingers at the telescope, I can first see a naked eye view i.e. "Flip" = "none"; then when I get to my Finderscope FOV the "Flip" orientation would automatically change to what i previously set it to; then again as I zoomed further to my eyepiece FOV it would "Flip" to that specific "Flip" orientation. 

This would save a lot of time for me at the scope. I had a Palm astro program that did this for me but I no longer have that Palm device. 

I don't think people would set this if they didn't need it so confusion would be no greater than it is now. Perhaps a pop-up warning for people to remember this ias they set-it or an indicator that displays this feature as turned on would also help avoid problems for novices.At the end of the day, this is a pro app and would help pros tremendously. 

Thank so much

    We can consider this for SkySafari 6 although we already have a pretty full feature set to implement.  I do think this has the potential to be confusing to users but there may be some way to do it cleanly.

    Just have a toggle for FOV mode. Like when we click it, it will automatically orient itself based on the orientation we put in the fov menu. Then black out everything outside the fov.

    Worth considering.  Thanks.
