also shown on the printed chart. You can reach the Legend menu either by clicking on the Legend item in the Display menu, or by hitting Ctrl-L. It looks like this: Show Legend Show Time Time Zone Lat/Lon Caption RA/Dec Field Size Object key Mag Key Compass Sky Atlas 2000 Uranometria New Uranometria Millennium Alt/Az Ecliptic coords Galactic coords Supergalactic coords Hour Angle Second Time Layout: Position: (x) Vertical (x) Bottom ( ) Horizontal ( ) Top (x) Left ( ) Right ( ) Center Caption text: Options "Show Time" through "Hour Angle" are toggles, controlling whether an item will be put in the legend. If you're producing charts showing an eclipse, the time and lat/lon are important items that should appear on the chart. If the chart shows how to find the Double Cluster, however, the time and lat/lon are irrelevant, but the RA and declination should be shown. In the display, you can click on many of the legend items to change them, or to cause some related action. For example, if the time is shown in the legend, left-clicking on it will bring up the Time dialog and right-clicking on it will set the time to the present. Clicking on the RA will bring up the "Enter new RA/dec" box; clicking on the galactic coordinates will bring up a box to enter galactic coordinates for the chart center; and so on. (Tooltips are provided for all of these, but in a somewhat unusual place: on the application title bar.) When you turn the "Second Time" option on, Guide will ask you to select a time zone. The legend will then contain the "usual" time, but will also show you the "second time" in a different zone. This can be used to ensure that, for example, the legend shows the time in UT, but that you can still have the local time shown for reference,
