Is it possible to configure the Skyportal app to render the display to how the image appears in an eyepiece?  For example, if I'm looking at Jupiter in a telescope, I would like to be able to display Jupiter's SkyPortal image in the same orientation as how it's seen through the eyepiece.  

 

In Starry Night Pro the feature is called Orientation, and you would change it to Equatorial to view an object as seen through the telescope eyepiece.

Sorry, that feature is not in SkyPortal.  You can do it in SkySafari Plus or Pro.
