    Sorry Alex, I muddled things. I mean the Positions tab in Astro Calcs.

    Aha! In some combinations of location, type of object, and magnitude limit the list in this tab may be empty. The list "Nebulae" contains items with undefined type of nebula. The list has 3 items only (based on tandard edition of DSO catalog).


  2. Our website (stellarium.org) has been migrated on other hosting yesterday and some settings on new place caused troubles in first half of today. It's possible that Stellarium got wrong answers from stellarium.org and crash when he requested to update of some catalogues.Our website (stellarium.org) has been migrated on other hosting yesterday and some settings on new place caused troubles in first half of today.

    For example I didn't see any problems, what may confirm or decline this hypothesis in Dave's logs.

    Sorry Alex I know this isnt a bug report thread but since I see you're on it, can I just point out that in the (very excellent) WUT feature, calling up emission nebulae works and calling up reflection nebulae works, but calling just nebulae doesnt seem to. (v16.1)

    Sorry, I'm confused. WUT doesn't have separate lists for emission and reflection nebulae - so, are you meant WUT really or other tool in AstroCalc?

    Is it possible the problem is caused when it tries to auto update the catalogues?

    Maybe yes, maybe no. I never seen logs after the crash and I cannot say about source of crash.

    P.S. Alex - can I suggest making the install default to KEEP the main configuration file? Very few people want to lose their settings on a reinstall if at all possible.

    Sorry, no. I hope users may read the text.

    Just downloaded Stellarium to this new Win10 laptop and it wont use 24 hour clock setting, it keeps reverting to 11.00 in the morning.

    By default Stellarium get time format from locale, so, if you want to use 24 hour format of time, please set it clearly in Stellarium (F2 -> Navigation).

    I dont know whether this is the right place to report this small error; but the right angle of Triangulum is in the wrong place. The line should surely be from Mizan to Gamma Tri and not to 7 Tri.

    No exist the right form for constellations lines, but in this case seems your are right - I'll fix it. Thanks!

    Never thought of that. But, how I can do that? I mean, create some custom objects and put on selected coordinates for testing.

    Just try press Shift button and click left button of mouse on the sky. Some details available in Help window (F1).

    P.S. We might add scripting method for add/remove custom objects by galactic coordinates.

    In the Stellarium settings there is a plugin to show the mouse pointer coordinates but it don't seem to work, nothing happens if I try to configure it and no shortcut key is listed.

    Shortcut for enabling/disabling pointer coordinates you can configure through shortcut editor (F7).

    In the plugin (please click on "configure" button) you can configure type of coordinates, place of output data and visibility of button for enable/disable of pointer coordinates.

    Ah ! sounds good !! Yes that is the method I would have chosen, but stood no chance of implementing !! not being a programer of that capability !!! The best I could have hoped to do was mess with the star names filles but that would (could) cause havoc in the future LOL!

    I look forward to having a play with any, all,  implementations :thumbsup:

    Since version 0.90.0.9767 Stellarium supports small asterisms by equatorial coordinates of points of the segments (decimal hours for R.A. and decimal degrees for declination on epoch J2000.0).

    For example you can see Kemble's Cascade or Kemble's Kite in the last beta.
