One way to be able to see more instruments without positioning the point of view too far back is to increase/widen the Field of View, in the Graphics Settings. However, as viewing field gets wider, the instruments will look smaller, and more distortion will appear on the edges. So you’ll just have to experiment to obtain the optimal settings to your liking. Having a larger monitor helps.
