Post by han.k » 07 Mar 2018, 14:21

To all HNSKY users.

HNSKY version 4.0.0 is released after 3 months testing:

Many thanks to Roberto and Vic for the regular feedback and remarks.

The forum was suffering from some spam. This should be solved now by a small test on astronomical knowledge for new members.

Clear skies,Han

The program main changes compared with 3.4.0 are:

- Improved swipe functionality.
- New improved telescope cursor, the telescope position is now shown as a correct sized and orientated rectangle. Orientation can be set manually with mouse wheel while holding CTRL key down.
