*@class Align
*@short Align class handles plate-solving and polar alignment measurement and correction using
* The align class can capture images from the CCD and use either online or offline engine to solve the plate constants and find the center RA/DEC coordinates. The user selects the action
* to perform when the solver completes successfully. Measurement of polar alignment errors is performed by capturing two images on selected points in the sky and measuring the declination drift to calculate
* the error in the mount's azimutn and altitude displacement from optimal. Correction is carried by asking the user to re-center a star by adjusting the telescope's azimuth and/or altitude knobs.
