Move 5x zoom box with keyboard

Question

Hi, 

I want to do planetary imaging and my targets have some drift. Right now on my Canon 7D2 I have to use the joystick on the camera body to move the 5x zoom box diagonally across the live view to keep my planet centered. This introduces a lot of camera jitter. It would be awesome if the up/down/left/right keys on the keyboard moved the zoom box while imaging; I'd be able to get a lot more good frames. Using the mouse to move the zoom box requires un-zooming to 1x and rezooming to 5x which also loses time and frames (and confuses stacking software when it is seeing 1x planets and 5x planets in one video)
