This sounds very good. A model that just happens if you want it to.

Hi Paul,

First you would enable a mode in the hand box that will enable the
collection of
points and build a model from them. You then slew to your first
target. If it is
not centered you center the object in the eyepiece and click Synch
(or RCAL). A
correction point is then added to the pointing model. As you go
through more
visual objects the pointing model becomes more accurate each time
you add a
point.

If you are not interested in having a pointing model or are using
an external
model then you wouldn't use this feature. I think that building a
model that
improves pointing accuracy as you observe would be pretty painless.

Comments?
