Hand controller idea
How about...shortcuts from one menu area to another without navigating
up and down the menu tree.
For instance, Recal anywhere the  doesn't already do something else.
For instance, why not allow a Recal after slewing, without going up to
Also, any number of shortcuts to functions might be added where you
could use a numeric code. For instance  for Recal,  goes to
tour menu (from anywhere almost),  for dimmer,  for brighter,
 to Messiers,  to NGC's, etc. etc.
After a little practice one would know ones codes up and down the list.
