Multi-crystal reference

Within this option, the orientation of a previously mounted crystal is fetched to allow the alignment of a similar but freshly mounted crystal in the same orientation. 

Use case
This scenario enables the combination of diffraction data from a multitude of isomorphous crystals of the same macromolecule in a very effective way, being valuable especially if radiation sensitivity limits the data collection. By utilizing referenced orientation together with strategy calculation, a data collection can be continued with no or only small overlap between consecutive data sets from different crystals.
