A new version is available in http://tachyonweb.net/downloads.html
Some new features and a bunch of bugs fixed.
- From the main screen you have 3 fast access buttons. One, Top Left, opens SkyChart. The second, top right, opens the Handbox, if Telescope is connected. The third is the telescope Connect/Disconnect. It is a colored small ball at right of Telescope text. It has 3 colors. Gray means it is trying to connect. Red means it is disconnected and Green means connected. That way we supressed Telescope connections from Main Menu.
- Zoom in SkyCharts begins with Z180 to allow whole sky view. To unclutter labels use context menu option Labels/All Labels toggle.
- Handbox has a context menu in the text area that allows use of several functions in Tachyon, but has the problem that is white.
- Telescope Comm Log can be reached from Handbox/Context Menu and from SkyChart/TEL
- You can reach Serial Port Configuration from Telescope Setup
- Telescope Comm Log in Telescope menu working.
- Planets draw correctly (It was a bug from previous version) in Skychart
- In SkyCharts name modified from Bitmap to ImEdit, as suggested by Tony. This allows user to manage bitmaps available in realsky.
- Global Find that can be reached from DSS and other places was modified as to have a better user experiences
- Several dialogues were darkened as to facilitate night vision.
