Re: Simon's World Map 1.3.2


Ken, is there a chance you could make the font somewhat larger? Some folks have eyes that have aged out of their warranty period.

Thanks Simon.  That would probably cover most of the needs of an EME user.  Add azimuth and elevation and the list would be complete.


There is a useful app available for smart phones (both Android and Mac/iOS are supported) called LunaSolCal.  It shows all of the data for both the moon and the sun for any location of interest.  Interested users can find it in the app store for their particular phone.  A Windows version is also available, but I haven’t tried it yet. 


I only point this out to provide some insight as to other data elements that potential users would find of interest.   As for lunar information, LunaSolCal provides time and azimuth of lunar rise, set, and lunar ‘noon’, as well as phase, age/visibility (degree of illumination), date and time of next new moon and full moon, lower culmination, declination, distance, date of next perigee and apogee, date and time of next lunar eclipse, etc.


Thanks for such a great program as Simon’s World Map, and for your willingness to make it even better by responding to user requests. 

Thanks and 73 Simon.
