Comment by Matthew Gates:

RA and decimal degrees describe different things. RA is a coordinate, decimal degrees is a numerical format. Perhaps you mean an option to display RA values as either hours, minutes, seconds format (HMS) or decimal degrees? This would also means declenation would change from degrees minutes seconds (DMS) to decimal degrees.

Yes this would be nice. Al the moment it's hard coded but it would be a possible option. The only problem with this is that we really really want to keep the GUI as simple and clean as possible, and adding a lot of options like this is really hard to do whiloe maintaining a clean interface. Maybe it could be a config.ini only option.
