my semipermanent observatory sits next to the house, and several trees are limiting my view. quite often I estimate that I should be able to get Rosette between 2200 and 0300, but I am often quite wrong...
is there an EKOS feature that would allow me to semi-automatically "map the horizon", so that EKOS could tell me : you target is below YOUR horizon?
I would really love if this can be incorporated in the scheduler, as an 'tarket is 5 degrees above artificial horizon.
That would help me get the early morning targets without complicated planning.
Afaik it's not implemented and not high in the list of priorities.

The horizon in Kstars is great but one issue I often struggle with is which point to take as the edge of the horizon when building it using my scope, use the centre of FOV or the edge of FOV? This would make 'tarket is 5 degrees above artificial horizon' something that would need to be standardised.
I think I used centre last time, but this has changed slightly as there are no leaves on the trees at the moment
However, being able to judge against the horizon in the scheduler is a good item - as then I wouldn't have to manually alter my sequences to stop before the target disappears and then move on to something else.
