Positioning astronomical images without AVM metadata

Mark SubbaRao suggested that we post this question here in the forum as it may be helpful to others:

If you load an image without AVM metadata, how do you position it? I am not having a lot of luck with the “Edit…” dialog box.

Hi John, If you import as Astronomical Image without AVM data it will just place it somewhere. Then with the image selected in collections hit Ctrl-e that will bring up the manual placement controls. Once your are close, I find the ‘Pivot Mode’ gives you the best alignments.
