I have read and read the manual, but could not find the answer:

Another software can after a plate solve move the mounting to the exact RA and Dec I originally wanted. Does Prism have this capability too ??? If so, what page in the manual ??

Good morning Frank

Automatic centering is part of the automatic observation and It can be easily done by hand. In Auto Obs. Prism slew to the selected target > takes an image > plate solves > calculates the offset > slews to the new coordinates > plate solves to ensure centering. In the manual mode, you can take an image and solve and sync and the skychart will update with the exact coordinates. We have a few enhancements on our to do list that our customers will really like.

Thanks.
