The sky map feature is really nice!

But (you knew there would be a but, didn’t you) it doesn’t work as I expected. In particular, there is only one image noted as being in Sculptor, and that is not mine of the globular NGC288.

Fair enough, the plate solve didn’t work well enough.

However, discovering that Jupiter was to be found on the Pavo-Indus border came as quite a shock!

I took an image on the Tel-Ind border a while ago, but that is not the one indicated on the map. Indeed, it is not indicated at all.

I suspect that some hand annotation might be required. I will offer my services if desired.
