STAR Atlas:PRO frequently asked questions - FAQs

Is 800 x 600 the best Screen Resolution Setting to run STAR Atlas:PRO ?

No, 800x600 is not the best Screen Resolution setting, even though it is adequate and the minimum required setting for STAR Atlas:PRO.

It is highly recommended you try screen resolutions like 1024 x 768 and higher, to produce the best looking on-screen Star Charts (for example seethis chart of M31 that was created on a screen resolution of 1280x1024)
To check your current Screen Resolution.

1. Right-click on your Windows Desktop.
2. Choose Properties from the pop-up menu.
3. Now choose the Settings tab from the Display Properties dialog box.
4. The current Screen Resolution setting is displayed and you can usually alter the setting here.

You can also check Windows Help (usually accessible from the Windows Start button) for further information.
