Polaris Hour Angle #38698
Hello all,

Playing with the star Polaris in Kstars, it would be nice to position hour angle directly on the equatorial map with all the information, graduated circles etc.
What do you think ?

Polaris Hour Angle #38720
Clever - but would really clutter that area of the map. Still would be cool, but not really necessary. Just click top menu "observation" then "hour angle".
We only need to see it once maybe per session. (Rather than all night). And those with obsy's don't need to see it at all.
But in reality the best reason not to is the hour angle map is usually flipped because the polar alignment scope flips. So it will be flipped from the Kstars sky map.
See what I mean?

Hi Ron,

Sure, it's really clutter on your map, do you see any stars sometime ? ;)
I have perfectly understood what you meant , but may be a little button help to appear an hours circle with Polaris in red in the same position
as we see through ours polar finder.
It's not clever but it's should be more convenient than necessary !! Just a convenient idea
