Planet or surface guiding in FC

Still reading docs and forums and just realised that apparently you can guide on a planet or on the moon surface with FireCapture. Anybody using this?

Yeah, it works pretty well, you just have to make sure that the camera is aligned with the cardinal directions. No need to babysit or have a seperate guide cam.

Marc,
I use the surface settings and multiple alignment points for all my solar imaging. Works well for me.
I believe the planetary settings work very well .......ROI and guiding.
