Just a thought, is there any way I can get Stellarium to display the angle/elevation as I move up from horizontal, a scale down the edge would be useful?

Looked through all the menus but can't find it.

Once yo click on an object it shows its elevation all right but would be useful (to me) to see what elevation I'm at all the time while scanning around.

If you download the free version of Stellarium to your phone you can show RA and DEC grid lines at the touch of the layers icon.  If your phone includes a compass, it can show the night sky behind wherever it's aimed.  For a one- off payment of £14.49 (Android) you can buy all sorts of goodies such as camera lens framing and control of some go-to mounts, but I lived too long in Yorkshire to have risked that just yet.
