+<guimenuitem>Simulate eyepiece view</guimenuitem>: Eyepiece View feature renders the
+view through the eyepiece of various telescope types. Firstly, an input dialog is shown,
+which asks you to select one of the visible FOVs to use as a FOV for the eyepiece view.
+The user also has the option of trying to determine it from the image (accurate if
+image has metadata, otherwise it will be random). After you set the FOV,
+the "Eyepiece Field View" window will pop up.
+You can easily rotate the view using the "Rotation" slider. You can
+also flip and invert the view to help match the view through a telescope/camera.
+"Eyepiece view" tool can help you locate many objects with ease, instead of
+trying to work with relative positions and relative orientations.
+This is an important advantage, especially when you are star hopping.
+Note that for getting best results, time must be synced with current
+time in &kstars;, and &kstars; must be in horizontal coordinates mode.
