Yes, I could make the code look for the TheSkyX COM process running and try to interrogate it for what the current pointing is, catching an error if need be. I have never bothered as I usually take many dozens of images of the same target and use a platesolving script that feeds the RA/Dec coordinates of the previous frame solved into an astrometry.NET instance. Upshot is that solving the first frame is slow, but the later frames solve in a second or two (depending on how many cores I use).
Worth thinking about – after I make the code rattle through the filters….
