FITS Viewer WCS Loaded and Ready Indicator- [Issue: Erroneous slews] #60167
I was experimenting with the center telescope feature in the FITS viewer and FITS image in the Align module and noticed an odd behavior.
If the center telescope pointer is used too soon, it will attempt to slew the mount to an area selected around 00°00'00" RA and Dec.
On my Pi4, it took about 15 seconds for the WCS coordinates to load with the solved simulator image and for it to become available to use center telescope.
Currently the center telescope tool is not selectable when there is no WCS information; however it is unlocked while in the process of loading the WCS, thus causing an issue if attempted too soon.
So some kind of indication that WCS is loading would be useful, as well as locking the tool until it is ready.
