That's good while I'm in Stellarium, but what happens starting it up or if I switch to a different program?
By default, I'd go back to the really bright (relative to night skys) Windows OS menus and screens. I'd like to know if there is anything that kills — or mutes the screen colors/brightness to save my night vision.
Other than a star program (Stellariun, Starry Night, etc.) are there any other programs that I would want to use?
