How do I sync CGEM to Stellarium.

To slew the telescope to the currently selected object, press the control button and the number of the telescope (typically #1). Works great for me.

I understand how to send the mount to the target, (as you explained, press control and number 1).
The problem is that when Stellariums "telescope position marker" reaches the target on the screen, the target is not quite in the scopes eyepiece. At that point, you pick up the Mounts Hand Control and center the object in the scopes eyepiece. Once you've done that, if you look back at the screen, you will see that Stellarium's "telescope position marker" has moved off the target.
In CDC there is a sync button. You press it and it moves CDC's on screen "telescope position marker", back to the target, where the scope is now pointing. Once synced, both scope and the programs "telescope position marker", are pointed at the same place in the sky. All subsequent commands from the CDC program put the target in the eyepiece of the scope.
I can't find a similar sync feature in Stellarium.

Sorry the mis-understanding on my part. I haven't seen the sync command option with the default scope plugin. I'll have to checkout the StellariumScope add-on that Rod mention.
Tony, thanks for asking the question.
Rod, thanks for the solution.

Use Control 1 to slew and Control 3 to sync.
