 +==Setting the Framesize Default==
 +Q: I am using a 6" Schmidt Newton F/5 with a (modified) Canon 350D, my FOV is about 2 x 1 degrees.
 +However currently the maximum framesize is 60 arcmin (1 degree). Is it possible to make the framesize bigger than 60 arcmin, say 150 x 150 arcmin?
 +
 +
 +
 +Chris: Yes it is possible to increase the maximum frame size but you'll need to do a little bit of text editing.
 +First make sure the mosaic program isn't running then find the EQMOSAIC.ini file. Under XP it can be found in .... 
 +
 +<code vb>
 + C:​\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\EQMOD
 +</​code>​
 +where USERNAME is your windows username.
 +
 +(You should also see an EQMOD.ini file in this directory if you're using the latest version of EQMOD.)
 +Note that the Application Data folder has the hidden attribute set so you may have to make sure your file explorer is showing hidden files.
 +
 +If you open EQMOSAIC.ini file you'll see some lines like
 +<code vb>
 + DEC_MAX_FOV=60
 + RA_MAX_FOV=60
 +</​code>​
 +You can set new values as required but obviously the bigger numbers you use the less resolution you have on the slider'​s that change the FOV in the mosaic program itself - so you may find yourself having to use the nudge buttons rather than the sliders to get an '​exact'​ value.
