A7S/R Use Internal Sensor Stabilization for Star Tracking?

 

There is a camera available (Pentax KP) which is using its internal sensor stabilizer (in combination with a GPS device "Astrotracer") for tracking stars during long exposure. Something similar would be a very nice Application for the Sony Alphas with internal Sensor Stabilization as the A7SII / RII.

What you think?

 

Tried to contact Sony for this suggestion, but unfortunately they seem to show little interest...

Pentax cameras can also rotate the sensor so that it's level even if the camera isn't.
