"Can't zoom further due to active limited resources mode" was created by kamisan

I got that message while try to zoom in on a star's disc in FITS Viewer on Astroberry last night.
Is it due to the limited RAM on the Pi Model B or the 6GB of free space on the SD card?
Thanks.

First of all it is because " limited resources mode" is active, which mean it has been activated n KStars settings (Settings/Configure KStars/FITS)
Second, it is related to limited RAM on raspberry pi.
You can disable the mode, but keep in mind that zooming too much can actually eat all your RAM. It is only 1GB :-/ Te results are pretty much predictable - instant KStars crash
