From working in Pro-Am collaborations, I was told that the Astrometry in UCAC4 and other older catalogs has built in bias which causes error up to 0.5' and the professionals now wish to have astrometry with DR2 as a reference. Currently, the only way I have of doing this is with Astrometrica. However, it would be much more convenient to be able to perform DR2 astrometry with Prism. Is this planned or would you add it to the to do list?
