I use Cartes du Ciel (CdC) for GoTo.  CdC integrates well with ASCOM to A-P ASCOM Driver and APCC. 

With CdC, I use a similar process to Roland for centering elsewhere from the desired object.  Particularly handy for multiple objects, e.g. galaxy clusters.  I just pick a star at the desired center point, slew, and plate solve with local version of astrometry.net.  I write down the star ID and I can use it multiple sessions. 

CdC and AN are both free and robust
