SkySafari help new
      #5698508 - 02/24/13 04:08 PM

Couldn't find a topic header for this so....

I was told you can superimpose Telerad circles on the SkySafari screen (I have the Plus version). Can someone give me a step-by-step? This is not for telescope control.

I would try posting this in the "Astronomy Software & Computers" forum. There are lots of SkySafari users there including the SkySafari vendor.

Basically go into settings telescope display you will need to turn on telrad and show even if scope is not connected.

Thanks. It seems to me they could make that a simple adjunct to centering.

Yes it seems a bit strange the way it's hid. Glad you got it to work.

Glad I could help.

Actually, it wasn't that hard once I got my head out of my butt and read the check box that basically said "use Telrad even if scope isn't attached".

This type of thing can also be adjusted without going into the settings menu.

Note that if you tap on the FOV notation in the upper right corner (where it says what the current field of view is for the display), you will get a menu with buttons that pops up. The buttons allow you to flip the view to match a reflector/refractor, quickly move to a specific zoom/FOV setting, and to turn the various finder rings on/off.

Thanks. I learned something new. I wasn't aware of that feature. Thanks for Sharing.
