New Reticle for PolarFinder

Recommended Posts

I have created a new reticle file for Jason Dale's PolarFinder app.

The app is now 13 years old, it works really well but the reticle does not match the new style with 72 instead of 24 graduations.

The modified version with the new reticle is much easier to use.

As it is a bmp file, I have had to upload it in a small zip file (without PolarFinder, but I give a link to a PolarFinder download!)

You just need to download the new reticle here http://www.stubmandrel.co.uk/astronomy/123-new-style-reticle-for-polarfinder then save the new reticle.bmp in your PolarFinder folder.

Ideally PolarFinder could do with the code re-writing so the dot moves in a larger diameter circle, which would allow the reticle to be bigger, but even so I find this much easier to use with the new-style polarscope.
