In AA8 it was possible to center an image, just downloaded from the camera, "plate solving" it then right clicking on the object (context menu: "Telescope center").
The three other methods can now be launched from the "Center" page of the Telescope Window:
- "Exposure + Center" (with plate solving, using the Centering Window below).
- "Center only" (with plate solving).
- "Manual centering".
The second command is the same of Astroart 6/7, you need to manually download an image from the camera before launching the command, which will only move the telescope.
The third command is the same of Astroart 5 and older, it does not use plate solving. The field of view must be specified exactly and the object must be manually selected with a point on the image.
