I don't see this as a problem. After all the display is a representation of stars with relative brightness. When zoomed in to a FOV sub arc minutes I can readily see the difference between stars of different magnitudes, even if it is not strictly accurate. I never expected to measure the size of stars from the screen. I did find however that using a relative brightnesss of .65 gave a much better display for me.
