 +==Using the [Spiral] button in Mosaic==
 +  -The first click of the [Spiral] button initializes the spiral slew
 +  -Subsequent button clicks slew the scope in a "​circular"​ pattern of grid positions
 +  -When all grid positions have been covered the process starts again. Provided your target is roughly circular/​square and doesn'​t span the meridian during your imaging session, this provides a simple one button approach to mosaic building.
 +**Note:​ **The spiral button only becomes active once a scope is connected its position read. Also the Spiral and Slew buttons are disabled until the slew is complete.\\ ​ \\  Mosaic can also be used as a spiral search where it is necessary to pause to take an exposure. This works well for finding dim targets where you need a long exposure image.
