Quote:Jon,Have you tried:Settings > Stars > Star Symbol Size?This setting will allow you to double the size over the default.
Quote: My usual complaint is the stars are too big (The Sky is bad this way) but with the higher resolution and small screens of the 7 inch tablets and of course my older eyes, I need bigger stars.

Quote: Jon, I don't know if this is blasphemy on CN, but you should join the southern stars Yahoogroup for SkySafari discussions.
Quote:I hate using Yahoo groups for the same reason. Describing them as merely clunky is much to generous. I can't figure out why anyone uses them.
Quote:EDIT: The SkySafari Pro on my iPad does this but you have to go to multiple screens to make it happen, a front screen slider to adjust the star magnitude would work well (or a button to bring up a floating screen like the scope control that controlled the names on/off and star magnitude would be fantastic!)
Quote:The problem is that everyone has their own special feature that they want easy access to. You are literally the first to request a faster way to toggle star names. There is just no pleasing everyone.
