    By the way, if I would like to add the extra data files into Stellarium, how should I process with the installation ? with Wiondows 10 64BIT.

    F4 -> Extras tab -> Star catalog updates

    @alexwolf

    Have you considered updating Stellarium catalog?

    Yes, in perspective

    4 hours ago, vlaiv said:

    Some time ago I tried using information from Stellarium, notably, B-V color index of stars to do color calibration, and concluded that it is quite wrong.

    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?

    4 hours ago, vlaiv said:

    Here is a very good catalog that I was recommended, that has star temperature and other information from Gaia DR2 (along other sources):

    https://archive.stsci.edu/prepds/atlas-refcat2/

    Maybe you could do simple update (star matching by position and then extracting information for update of Stellarium catalogs)?

    It's really not "simple" :)

    BTW patches and contributors welcome ;)

    Thanks for the new Stellarium. Stellarium rules!

    I turned on the info for rise/transit/set. Three lines are added to the info section at top-left. I can't read them though. The font for these lines is black.

    Is there a setting I can apply to solve this?

    Damn! it's a bug :(

    Please disable formatting output or enable displaying sidereal time also.

    P.S. I've fixed it in master

    Thanks to everyone who works on Stellarium it is a fantastic open source project. I was excited for the 0.18.3 release.

    I have 2 questions about configuration. I was wondering how I can set the default light pollution? Ideally to my landscape file (I really like that I can make one for each observing site), or if not just in the congif.ini file. I have set "light_pollution_luminance = 4.0" but it just ignores that and shows 2.

    The second question is how do you set it so DSOs are shown by default? I can't see a setting for that in the old wiki. They seem to be off by default.

    Just change settings and press button "Save settings" (F2 -> Main Tab)
