I'm trying to film a space battle where space ships are firing lasers at other ships and I'm trying to use the laser from the light show to do it. How the hell do you place these little later boxes where you need them to be; the tiny control circle is the smallest of all the items in the whole of MS, it's infuriating really or am I missing something so simple. Any help please before I go nuts

I would tend to zoom in close to it so that I could see it better.

 

Double click on it to centre your viewpoint's orbit centre on it. Hold the right mouse button and move the mouse to orbit around it. Use the scroll wheel to move your viewpoint nearer or further away from the orbit centre.

I am doing all that but the orbits are just so small, it's only possible to move it a few inches before you run out of screen to play with surely it would be better if the orbit was a much bigger it's far too fiddly to use

Well, you could put the laser on a bigger block, and move the block around instead. The Gizmo size changes with the size of the thing it is attached to.
