Sky section

The Sky section (Fig. 15) contains a graphic display ( Sky Graphics Window), which shows the sky as it is projected onto the focal plane. If, tracking is disabled, the stars drift through the window. The FOV of the main camera (large box) and of the guiding camera are indicated. The stars are taken from the Guide Star Catalogue and have a limiting magnitude V$<$15 mag.
