LiveView

 
LiveView is controlled by the button "LiveView" in the main screen or with Alt+L shortcut.
 It has different behavior in DSLR and CCD/CMOS modes.
 
 
Using "Zoom +"  and "Zoom -" you can increase/decrease the LiveView zoom level to 5x (or 10x if it is clicked two times).  For most EOS cameras Zoom x5 is very close to the representation "1:1" - "one pixel from the image, represents one sensor pixel". It is valuable feature for planetary astro-photography.
 
Troubleshoot: If the Zoom+ is not working, then go to the camera menu and disable the Face Detection feature. It is not compatible with LiveView zoom.
 
Tips & Tricks: To place the zoom window in the center of the image, use Shift+Double click.
 
Tips & Tricks: When Zoom x5 or x10 is enabled APT shows small cross to mark the exact center of the camera sensor. It is useful when precise star alignment is needed.
 
 
Using "Zoom +"  and "Zoom -" you can increase/decrease the LiveView zoom level to from 0% to 100%.  For most Nikon Zoom 100% is the representation "1:1" - "one pixel from the image, represents one sensor pixel". However the poor quality of the LiveView stream doesn't allow it usage for planetary astro-photography.
 
Tips & Tricks: To place the zoom window in the center of the image, use Shift+Double click.
 
 
The CCD/CMOS cameras have no hardware supported Zoom. In order to make a software zoom you can use Tools->Magnifier feature.
