When using my DSI II color imager, I've tried to get my computer screen to project in red night vision. If I activate night vision in autostar for the star map etc. everything is bordered in red and is fine. As soon as I activate the DSI imager and got to Envisonage, the thin borders remain red, but the rest of the screen is a bright gray in all but the imaging area which shows an image in appropriate color. Is there a way to get night vision on the commands background etc?

This has been a problem and is being looked into in a future update.

OK on that Mark - but it's been as per the original post for at least 2 years - if you have anything to do with Meade, would you get them to get a wriggle on? I mean it's very dismissive of customers on Meade's part ... coming ... sometime in the future, yeah right!; just like my report to Meade engineering about there being no 'half hour offset' for timezones 2 years ago .. "will be fixed in a future update" I resort to a red coloured acrylic plastic screen over the LCD - good grief. No wonder people get cheesed off with Meade. Even bad ole MS gets software fixes out quicker than this!

Remember when this software was written it may have worked at the time but as Microsoft fixed things ( I use the term loosly  they destroy more than they fix and it is hard for software writers to keep up with trying to figure out what Microsoft has done.
I do not work for Meade I just help moderate the board so all I can do is pass along information.
I Believe it has a lot to do with the DOT NET framework ans the XP systems and im not sure about Vista as I wont even get close to vista.
All I can say is please be patient with the rest of us and see what happens.
