    Re:DIY Starfinder - a lockdown project

    Hello Tibor,

    I made your DIY Strafinder for my latitude 50°N.
    But I have problems reading the Date scale, speciaL the months printing.
    It is so light that my old eyes hardly can read it.
    The star positions and the star numbers are more fatt printed and good readable.
    Is there a way to darken the month scale?
    A darker scale+months does not interfer with other objects on the DIY Starfinder
    I like the design, also the direct finding of the GHAAries is nice.
    This makes holding a separate USPS Aries Calculator obsolate.
    I have not tried out every ascpect, because the light printed scale annoys me.

    regards
    Herman Dekker
