I presume you have set the zoom to 0.31 for realistic viewing thorough all
three monitors? That setting on one screen would be almost fish-eye.

I've just done a rough check, focussing on Hawarden, at a distance of 7
nm. Zoom was at 0.31, which most users think looks natural. It's also
the minimum zoom value.
Turning to bring the field to the right edge of the centre panel produce
a bearing of 279 (from FSNav), against n aircraft heading of 256. Turning
until the field is at the right extremity of the right screen
leaves it bearing 281, against the aircraft heading of 228. That seems to
indicate an arc of view of about 106 degrees, compared to
about 46 deg for the single screen.
i'm probably wildly out but it gives some idea of the differnce.
