How Come Deep Sky Objects Are Always Displayed? (Answer: Read On!)

Hi, I Have used SF for many versions/years.

Running Skysafari 7 pro  7.1.7 (1071)  on Ipad pro 11 ", IOS 16.2

Under SETTINGS. If I set stars to OFF,   OK no Stars, If I set Milky way to Off, OK , Constellations turn on/off normal

But If I set DEEP SKY-Show Objects, Show Images to OFF your app still shows Nebula, Clusters, M xx , Galaxy..   The screen display is the same if selection is ON/OFF for Deep Sky

Note : Under Deep sky, I also have all the OBJECT TYPE SELECTION disabled . It seems All Deep sky objects are displayed no matter how the SETTINGS are set.

Any Help on this?

    Hello Steve,

    Did you turn both Deep Sky "Show Objects" and "Show Images" to off?  I don't see any deep sky objects if both are off.

    Hi Bruce, Keiron

    Sorry. I forgot about replying back to email instead of here.

    after a lot of experimenting, it appears the Messier Objects, at least for me, 
    are always displayed. By zooming in I was able to display the dimmer
    galaxies and the bright/dark Nebula. They do toggle on/off with the
    settings. My Mistake on how it hides items on large scale view.. I had forgotten about that.

    I'm still having issues with being able  turning on/off Open / Globular clusters.

    Take care

    So if all of the switches or off you still see open and globular clusters.
