Hi Guys, sorry I was away. Thanks a lot for all your inputs. Virtual Moon Atlas seems to be a good alternative. I might use my Toucam Pro to view the Moon feature side by side with VMA.

I also use VMA and compare it to the "Live" view through the telescope. Even after all these years I realize just how little I know.

VMA DOES interface with your telescope GOTO. It could be operator error but I found it confused the issue more than helped, ESPECIALLY if you're using a scope with short (lets say under a meter) focal length.
