Docking MFD
« on: July 12, 2016, 02:30:21 PM »
Are the green and yellow crosspointers in the docking mfd functional? If so, how are they used?

Hi Sailor,

Great question. The crosses are meant to give an indication of deviation from your target rotation and position. The yellow cross should indicate how off you are in rotation and the green cross how off you are in position.

Thanks for the help! If I understand you correctly, yellow cross is rotational alignment with the docking collar and green cross is positional/translational alignment? when properly aligned, should bothe crosses be in the center of the MFD?

Yes that's the intended effect.
