One of the things I find frustrating about the lack of eyepoint control
in FSX is that you know the sharpest section of Horizon scenery is just
out of view. Try launching the Top Down window, or whatever it's called,
and the view is spectacularly sharp. Since it gets sharper the closer
you get, then the best view is always unobtainable.
