Save CCD FOV, Import MPC Sky Coverage

Registered by David Rankin on 2016-12-19

This would be amazing.

Basically, when you load up the CCD FOV, there would be an option to save out the CCD location (the red square indicator). So it is tagged with the location and date for later use as an overlay. So you'd be able to load up some date range that that shows all previous saved FOVs for that date range.

It would also be amazing to import the sky coverage of the large observatories found here:
http://www.minorplanetcenter.net/iau/SkyCoverage.html

They give access to the raw data for the survey's sky coverage. It would be awesome to be able to import their coverage for the last few nights and display it in Stellarium.

This would help amateurs like myself avoid areas the large surveys recently hit easily, so we have a better chance of finding something new :)
