Topic 198358

Hello all.
Would it be possible without too much work to make the constellations more realistic (magnitude of the main stars)?
This wouln't add any for science but much for fun.

When in my garden, at night, I recognize the constellations because of the light my eyes "measure". That is not the case when in the sphere because all the dots figuring the stars have the same size.
So, it is diffucult to know where something is possibly happening (or under study) in the real space.

Just a suggestion, of course ! And thanks a lot to Einstein@home team who does quite a good job.

Constellations

Happy new year, and thank you for contributing to E@H!

That would mean quite a bit of work on something that wasn't changed in years - I don't think the graphics application even builds on our current development machines.

Sorry, we got our hands full with other things.

Thanks for your answer

Thanks for your answer Bernd.
My suggestion was as I said "if this is not too much a work". If it is too much, better continue as it is. Do not lose your time for such détails. Priority to science !
Congratulations to all the E@H team and have a nice new year.
