KStars Star map wishlist #43494
Hi,

I don't know if this was addressed before but sometimes it's hard to see the stars and the star labels - at least for me as my eyes getting older and older...

Coming from Equinox Pro I miss a feature where you can control how stars are displayed by altering their brightness and color saturation.
This way you can make them a bit bigger and so on.

The ability to change the font sizes for the cardinal points and labels would also be very interesting for me. :-)

Is anything from my wishes on the roadmap?

All the best,
Oliver

I'll guess the right settings in KStars for altering brightness and color saturation is in Preferences -> Colours?
But that's not the way Equinox Pro or CDC does the job. Also, I can't find font settings for labels in the preferences?

Fonts are a bit tricky. They reflect the system theme and appearance settings. At least on Linux.
