Summary0002373: Feature request: horizon picture darkening with the arrival of night time
DescriptionHello Patrick,

Should you ever run out of ideas to improve the program, I have a feature request to suggest: it would be great if the custom horizon picture were to automatically darken upon the arrival of night time. I guess optimally this could be done by applying a filter in progressively darker steps depending on the altitude of the Sun and I reckon the presence of the Moon shine (similar to the sky background colour behaviour) ...?

Another useful feature would be to allow for an adjustment to be done to a vertical "Picture angel offset" parameter as well.

Best Regards

Hi Hugo,

This is a good idea.
At the moment for my location I use a picture I take at dusk so the horizon feature are dark and this look good at night. But this will be better with a darkened daylight picture.

I also look if it is possible to add a vertical offset.

This is implemented by:

This will be in Monday beta version.

There is two new options in the observatory horizon settings:
- a checkbox "Darken at night", checked by default.
- a vertical offset value that can be set between -20 and +20 degrees.

I like the darken feature and will redo my horizon picture in full daylight to use it.
