You can go to an absolute angle position on your dome by tapping on the textbox next to the Azimuth label and setting the angle value to go to. Now tap on the GO button to go to that angle position. The dome will now try going to that position, the dome status badge will show what type of rotation the dome is doing, and a compass preview will show a representation of the dome angle. After the movement is complete, you will be able to see the status badge change to "Tracking".
