The feature I want to use from ASPS is to be able to click anywhere in the solved image and get the RA/Dec of that point. Do you know of an app that will do that?

Re: Sparkocam

I've not used it but a possible problem could be not having a wide enough FOV if you are streaming video. The video resolution on a 1000d is only 768x512.If you're using a short focal length scope like a finder scope you may get away with it, but with you'll likely be out of luck with scopes at 400m...
