    It's just that the menus and print on the screen are quite big now. See zipped screenshot. If Stellarium had it's own user interface scaling option that would be wonderful.

    Please check Stellarium directory in Start menus ;)

    I hate to say it, but just running the default 'starter' still doesn't work & just 'freezes' the computer, I have to use Task Manager to kill it.

    Using the "Stellarium (ANGLE Direct3D 11 mode)" works ok.

    Win 10 Pro v2004 via remote desktop.

    Could you install beta version of drivers for your graphics card (I mean drivers from intel.com)?


  3. Today we released version 0.20.3 of Stellarium.

    The major changes of this version:
    - Fixed nutation and, with it, season beginning times
    - Many changes in AstroCalc tool and core of Stellarium
    - Many changes in Oculars and Satellites plugins
    - Updated DSO catalog

    Important note: We discontinued support for AppImage builds since version 0.20.3 due technical problems of AppImage architecture! Please use snap packages instead.

  4. Today we published a fresh weekly snapshot of Stellarium (v0.20.2.18140): https://github.com/Stellarium/stellarium-data/releases/tag/beta

    And we need some feedback from users. At the moment we need to know your opinion about changes in 2 plugins - Satellites and Oculars. Of course we'll accept your opinion about changes in other parts of the planetarium too, but those 2 plugins in our focus.

    Where is the Oculars folder for the Linux (Ubuntu) version. I am unable to locate it. I am copying the oculars folder from my Windows Laptop versio to my Desktop Ubuntu version.

    See ~/.stellarium directory (Hint: Stellarium 0.19.3 User Guide, page 52)
