Auto Centering Vertically Pop Up Window for a WIDE Diptych

Click me to reveal a pop-up window that centers itself to the user's monitor screen for a WIDE Diptych

(assumes the large diptych image is 650 px tall and you are using an <h1> heading above the large image)

How do you do this? Paste the following JavaScript in the <head>

<script type="text/javascript">
function openPopUpDiptych(newPage,w,h) {
    //Set values to variables
    var windowName='diptych';
    var popUpX=0;//sets pop up left edge to left edge of screen
    var popUpY=(screen.height-h)/2;//sets pop up vertical middle to middle of screen
    var features='width='+screen.width;
    features=features+', height='+h;
    features=features+', top='+popUpY+', left='+popUpX;
  features=features+', scrollbar=yes';
    //You can change the the following if you wish
    features=features+', resizeable=no';
    features=features+', toolbar=no';
    features=features+', location=no';
    features=features+', menubar=no';
    features=features+', status=no';,windowName,features);//This actually opens the pop up wth correct dimensions

The text or image link needs to be as such below - you can change the 775 depending if the vertical scroll bar shows up on your pop-up window because the link below assumes the large diptych image is 650 px tall and you are using an <h1> heading above the large image:
