Astro-Flash is a USB flash drive that is pre-loaded with high resolution astro-photos from Wa-chur-ed Observatory. Each image is optimized for screen display in 8 different sizes, four wide-screen and four traditional. These images can be used as computer desktop wallpaper and/or screen saver. Astro-Flash can also be plugged into a Smart TV for a big-screen celestial slide show, or you can transfer the images to a cell phone or tablet so you always have them with you.
Astro-Flash includes a special viewer program for Windows-based computers. With this program you can display text overlays for each image, including the title, object information, and technical data. Each of these three categories is independently enabled for display. Even when an overlay is not enabled you can temporarily display it for the current image by just pressing the corresponding key (“T” for title, “O” for object info, and “D” for technical data).
Beginning in 2018, Astro-Flash is divided into 3 different sub-sets of images in addition to the full set. The sub-sets each contain approximately a third of the full set. They are not divided up via object type or any other criterion, so each contains a good sampling of all the images.
The included screen formats are:
Wide (16:9) Formats: 1920 x 1080, 1366 x 768, 1280 x 720, 1024 x 600
Traditional (4:3) Formats: 1600 x 1200, 1280 x 960, 1152 x 864, 1024 x 768
Other screen formats can usually be supported by choosing the closest of these sizes.
