OAG FOV was created by Franck

Hi guys!
I am wondering if there is a way in Kstars/Ekos to plot the FOV of a possible OAG camera sensor on the star map, together with the main camera sensor FOV.
This should be considerably useful to check for possible guiding stars. Is there a fast way to do it?
Thank you in advance,

Replied by Peter Sütterlin on topic OAG FOV

In the 'FOV symbols' section you can create/edit one of the proper size, and give it an offset relative to the pointing coordinate. I did that when I used an OAG. Drawback is that it isn't linked to the sensor FOV, i.e., it will not flip to the other side when crossing the meridian. But you can create a second one for that.
