How To Get Screenshot Of The Sun, Planets With White Sky, Increase The Size Of The Labels, And Object Path Lines? (Answer: Read On!)

Since I need to print the orientation of the planets around the sun,

I need a white sky and not black. Also, I would like the name of the

planets and the sun to be BIGGER so that they will show up well on

Power Point presentations.

    Hey John,

    For SkySafari 6 Pro...

    Go to settings, appearance and behavior and set it to inverse monochrome chart. Then set font to Larger. Then go out of settings, click on Sun, click info, click orbit. Then you should be able to the orientation and planet names. I would recommend using a tablet to get a bigger screen shot including all of the planet names. Good luck!

    Hey Keiron. I cannot get your steps 3 and 4 to work for me.

    I got a white sky and larger, colored orbits for the planets.

    For some reason the planet name are in white letters. I can

    only see the names when they land on an orbit line. What to do?
