    Should be easy to add to the polar aligner frame without touching main UI:

    1) tell user to execute a GoTo a bright star
    2) have user push a button when done
    3) make sure the star is centered (1 iteration)
    4) tell user to turn alignment knobs to bring the star back to center.

    If the polar error is larger than FOV (which we know), tell user to do a coarse adjustment first (based on the angular values already shown).
