I know that skymap has a function allowing you to plot a 360 degree line on to its sky (For the purpose of showing your local horizon limits, trees, buildings etc).

Is there a function like this in Stellarium or Cartes du ciel ?

(I know stellarium allows you to take a series of photo's to create a 360 degree 'real' foreground but thats just too much hassle to get the height perfectly right.)
