It would be nice to have the option in the screen saver to show from Google Sky (or similar source) the actual picture of the area being analyzed.
Think about the following:
1. It will make the screen saver a lot more varied;
2. Maybe some visual correlation can be made, what happens if the picture is completely dark? Or there is a conspicuous object?
3. Some cycles of CPU and GPU can be saved as a static picture would be shown (no need to waste computing power in the animation)
4. It might draw more public interest!
What do you think?

Great Idea, I mannual enter the co-ords into Stellarium, then check it out with my telescope later. Stellarium is great and I take my laptop and Ipad with me for which I use Star Chart on Ipad. Stellarium is worth the coin, but is FREE for PC!
