You can reconfigure as already discussed OR use Local Scaling option available in Settings menu in the sliding panel.
This option is available only when Astroberry is accessed with a web browser. It will rescale 1920x1080 to your screen resolution, whatever it is.

So it looks like 5GHz wifi on RPi 3B+ is real pain in the neck :-/

I think you're absolutely right. In this view it's not even an image of even horizon, but particles sliding on it.
There's quite nice explanation of the topic in this video.

Is even horizon part of a black hole? I think it is, as it is specific to this object, also as Schwarzschild's solution to Einstein's field equations.

This actually true. It's like imaging silhouette of a man in a backlight. Still it is a picture of a man ;-)

Radek Kaczorek replied to the topic 'INDI and PHD2 on RPi 1?' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

I would add one thing to what Wouter already said - PHD2 uses binary libraries to support various cameras (e.g. ZWO). It might be that these libs are compiled for arm7 and you cannot recompile them... cause they're binary.
A workaround would be to use PHD2 in INDI CCD mode - this way you actually use INDI driver for a camera and connect to it from PHD2. However, no guarantee that INDI drivers will handle it because they probably use the same binary libs.

OK, I thought you compiled it yourself. It was removed from the sources some time ago.
Just ignore it and use GPSD. If you're using usb dongle you need to set proper serial port in /etc/default/gpsd, default is DEVICES="/dev/ttyS0" but this points to Raspberry Pi hardware serial.
Disconnect your GPS device, run "tail -f /var/log/syslog" in your terminal and connect the GPS. One of the lines will contain device port, such as /dev/ttyUSB0 or /dev/ttyAMA0 or similar. Use this port in /etc/default/gpsd
After restart your system should recognize GPS. Also review posts here on the forum for GPS USB dongles. There's quite a few of them which might be useful for you.
