Polar Alignment Readout Large Text

Post by nexusjeep » Mon Feb 04, 2019 10:06 pm

Hi Robin

Would it be possible to have an option to increase the size of the readout for Up/Down Left/Right on the polar alignment tool as my laptop is a little way from my mount in the observatory so I have to keep going back to the laptop and then back to the mount to adjust and so on until I get it dialled in were as if I could have an option to display the errors larger then I could read them from a distance.

Cheers
Nick

As a member in good standing of the Presbyopia Club I second this request-- right after some of the ASI294 problems are resolved.

There is though a work around in Windows 10.

Hi that would work if I was directly using the laptop but causes issues I think for me as I am connected to the Eagle on the telescope via RDP and running two monitors via the RDP link and from memory Windows 10 Enterprise on the Eagle wont allow me to alter the display parameters whilst inside a remote session.

I will give it ago to see what happens but it will still be awkward as you would have to change it back afterwards as it enlarges everything so effectively reduces the screen real estate for all applications and some applications get upset if you rescale whilst they are running.

Plan B binoculars - Plan C Huge display :D

Cheers
Nick
