Feature Request

Post by AndrewP » 30 Nov 2021, 00:16

Hi all

I find Astroart 8 to be a fantastic bit of software! I’m still finding out a lot about the many features. One possible request for Version 9, if it’s possible, would be the ability to annotate with a simple circle any blinking stars seen on the full screen blink view. This would be really useful so you don’t lose them which sometimes happen on large field images. The freeware package Star Blinker has this feature which is incredibly useful. The circle is maintained regardless of how much or often you change zoom level. It only needs to be temporary and not permanent such that it disappears once the full screen blinking image is closed.

Anyway just a suggestion

Regards
Andrew

Hi Andrew,
OK thank you, something similar will be added to the Service Pack 1 next year.
For "blinking stars" do you mean a moving minor planet?

Thanks Fabio

In my case it would be a variable star. However I suppose it could be a minor planet. The ability to add multiple circles to identify multiple objects on the one image would also be useful.

Regards
Andrew
