    If it helps, FOV for a 60x52 mag march is 0.333 degrees on 60x.

    Cheers Rob, that'll help me to sanity check the display.
    Of course if it's not about right then having a variable mag and being able to enter a FOV value might be a bit too much hassle.

    I'll take it one step at a time I think

    Added Scope magnification as an option now - you can't alter it on the course though, so if you pick a really windy course and a very high mag, you might not be able to aim off enough to hit the killzone.

    The mildots are set to be true at 16x mag - the Nikko ret should be about right though at any mag.

    Brian, any chance the dink dot could be a lighter colour to stand out against the dark red? Using a high res laptop screen now I struggle to see it at all.

    Brian awesome JS work! BUT there is a mistake. A killzone (4cm) should be equals to 1 point of mildot on 40m distance and 24x mag. Now it is not.

    upd: sorry, as you wrote in #183 post: x16 - true mag.

    And you can make it works with a touch devices:
    Also I recommend to disable a click events for a touch devices, and add a button:

    Nice work, thanks

    I'll have to create a git repo and you can do a pull request.

    It was only thrown together for a bit of fun while Leanne was in hospital, gave me something to do while waiting around :D

    If you know how to use Git, I've pushed the code onto a public repo

    https://github.com/bsamson/WindTrainer

    Create a branch and a pull request and I can add your code into the master branch and release it

    p.s. I'm not a front end dev either - .NET C# - I can get by with JS if I really have to

    Ok, sure I use a git.

    And one more fix:

    wind speed in m/s

    crosshair.js:

    Adding your Sightron ret and I'll add the m/s wind speed thing.

    Might need a more robust test for a mobile device than (screen.width > 1100) though, before adding touch support.

    I'll push the ret and m/s features to master and you can have a play

    Sure! Git commits - done.

    (screen.width > 1100) - disables a mouse click on the devices with a small screens. There is no mouse..so...
