  1. You need field stop diameter (not field stop position!).
  2. See ~/.stellarium directory (Hint: Stellarium 0.19.3 User Guide, page 52) For example: http://www.celestrak.com/NORAD/elements/visual.txt
  3. Please show screenshots from Stellarium in OpenGL and ANGLE modes. Would you check the font rendering when font scaling is disabled?
  4. Could you send me your landscape and log.txt from Stellarium? Or just for experiment: please try rename "stargazers home.png" into "stargazershome.png" and change maptex name to stargazershome.png too.
  5. The name of .ini file should be landscape - landscape.ini

  7. This trouble related to OpenSSL library in version 0.19.2 - 3 workarounds for it: a) using ssleay32.dll, libeay32.dll and libssl32.dll from version 0.19.1; b) download and using those DLL's from developers of OpenSSL or c) downloading and using beta version of Stellarium. In any way proposed beta shouldn't be affected by this issue.
  8. Hello everyone! We plan release version 0.19.3 in second half of this month and we want to get some help of testing Stellarium. Today I've published version 0.19.2.17442 and this is final beta - the next public package will be named 0.19.3RC1. I hope we did not leaving a serious bugs or regress in planetarium and we really need your help, because Stellarium is very big and couple developers cannot quickly test all features.

  10. Yes, this is known issue - https://github.com/Stellarium/stellarium/issues/786 The problem with creating SSL context caused by wrong version of openSSL libraries within Stellarium package (It's sad, but the problem was found a week after release ). I've pushed the fix of problem today (https://github.com/Stellarium/stellarium/commit/9c87c1495b859bb83dcac17f01163dc248c6e8d9) and it will be available for testing in next beta (tomorrow/next weekend?). Some workaround for you: https://www.cloudynights.com/topic/681465-stellarium-star-catalog-manual-installation-instructions/ This is other bug, caused by refactoring the code and founded after release - https://github.com/Stellarium/stellarium/issues/784 The fix available in beta versions.

  18. It's not a bug. I've improve RA/Dec output for CCD frame in Oculars plugin right now through split this data onto 2 lines. The fix will be available in Stellarium 0.19.2 (I hope he will be releasing tomorrow).
  19. Yes, in perspective For example? Why B-V in Stellarium (by fact from Tycho-2, HIP & XHIP) "is quite wrong"? How you convert data from various photometric systems? It's really not "simple" BTW patches and contributors welcome
