Align Module error reporting #45281
As part of the align tab, the user enters an accuracy (in arc-seconds) for the error tolerance
in pointing the telescope to the target, but the error value calculated is not currently reported
in the UI. What is currently reported is the DEC d-m-s arc-second difference, and the RA h-m-s
difference (which is not arc-seconds), not the combined arc-second difference.

I propose changing that to directly reporting the error.

Here's a screenshot of a proposed UI
drive.google.com/file/d/1EH51G3LosVIT9vL...tj4/view?usp=sharing

With this, the difference in arc-seconds (directly comparable to the user's specification),
followed by the RA and DEC arc-second differences are printed in the UI. It is printed in green
if the specification is met, and red if it is not met, and yellow if it is not met but close.

I've actually coded it up (see phabricator.kde.org/D25114 though that also has a bunch of removal of dead code)

Let me know what you think,

As a workaround, the alogn difference is reported in the logs window. But you have to be quick to read it because new text enters quickly.

Agreed. However, that line had scrolled quickly by me one too many times, which was the motivation for me to make this change.

Yes it is hard to catch so the change is very welcome. Thanks!
