Magnifier

 
The Magnifier Aid is accessible from Tools tab
or with Alt+M shortcut.
 
Magnifier Aid allows applying software zoom over an image part. It also can work in combination with Focusing Aid in order to inspect closer the star used for focusing. Some imagers investigate the aberrations in stars during the focusing.
 
The Magnifier Aid use the common aid behavior in APT- dragging the window and placing the Source frame over the image part that you want to use.
