nudge star for guiding #41127
Dear all,
Is there a way to nudge the guidestar a pixel or rather half a pixel in hor and/or ver direction?
I ask this because I need this function in order to position the star on the slit of my spectroscope.
This function exists btw in PHD2 and AstroArt, but it would be nice if the internal guider could do this as well
Cheers Arnold

You can use PHD2 as an external guider with KStars/EKOS and nudge it by issuing manual guide commands.
