Framing field rotation

Question

Sorry if this has been discussed before. 

It's awesome that plate solving is now integrated. I was wondering if there is any way to account for field rotation when using plate solving. This would be great for those who have a camera rotator on their telescope and would like to frame an object in a particular angle. I know one can use an image from a previous session in order to match the rotation, but I was wondering if one can do this using plate solving alone.

Edit: as an example, one could import the coordinates and angle provided by Telescopius and use them to slew/center/rotate.

There is support for "Manual Field Rotators" - the Frame and Focus "Framing Mask Overlay".

You should even be able to use the ASTAP Output "ANGLE" field (if you can see it in the few lines that the Log Review box displays).  (Sorry, am at work - can't remember if it shows...)
