A suggestion for adding a "celestial sphere" globe for celestial coordinate system. Celestial coordinates usually used are equatorial coordinate system ( and needs "right ascension" (longitude expressed in hours, where 1h = 15 degrees), "declination" (latitude) and an epoch.

With setting this globe, the mask will ask "right ascension" and "declination" instead of latitude and longitude and will not ask altitude; "right ascension" (longitude) will be expressed in hours instead degrees. The epoch will be a qualifier.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
