  2. Stellarium (0.16.1RC2) is available for testing.
  3. Today we published the first RC of version 0.16.1. Please test this package and report us about finded problems (in this topic or in our bug tracker). Full list of changes between version 0.16.0 and version 0.16.1RC1 (v0.90.0.9796): - Added two notations for unit of measurement of surface brightness - Added improvement for hide/unhide lines and grids in Oculars plugin - Added few moons of Saturn (Phoebe, Janus, Epimetheus, Helene, Telesto, Calypso, Atlas, Prometheus, Pandora, Pan) with classic elliptical orbits - Added few moons of Uranus (Cordelia, Cressida, Desdemona, Juliet, Ophelia) with classic elliptical orbits - Added 2 moons of Pluto (Kerberos and Styx) with classic elliptical orbits - Added code to avoid conflicts for names of asteroids and moons - Added support of IAU moon numbers - Added angular size into AstroCalc/Positions tool - Added option to allow users to choose output formatting of coordinates of objects - Added optional debug info for HDPI devices - Added optional calculations of resolution limits for Oculars plugin - Added new data from IAU Catalog of Star Names (LP: #1705111) - Added support download zip archives with TLE data to Satellites plugin - Added link to the Mike McCants' classified TLE data into the default list of TLE sources - Added link to AMSAT TLE data into the default list of TLE sources - Added support 'The Strasbourg-ESO Catalogue of Galactic Planetary Nebulae' (Acker+, 1992) [DSO catalog version 3.2] - Added support 'A catalogue of Galactic supernova remnants' (Green, 2014) [DSO catalog version 3.2] - Added support 'A Catalog of Rich Clusters of Galaxies' (Abell+, 1989) [DSO catalog version 3.2] - Added export the predictions of Iridium flares (LP: #1707390) - Added meta information about version and edition into file of Stellarium DSO Catalog to avoid potential crash of Stellarium in the future (validation the version of catalog before loading) - Added support of extra physical data for asteroids - Added support of outlines for DSO - Added new time step: saros - Added new time step: 7 sidereal days - Added more checks to the network connections - Added support of comments for constellations_boundaries.dat file (LP: #1711433) - Added support for small asterisms with lines by the equatorial coordinates - Added support for ray helpers - Added new feature (crossed lines and output string near mouse cursor) to the Pointer Coordinates plugin - Added missing cross-id data - Added support an images within description of landscapes - Fixed wrong rendering Neptune and Uranus (LP: #1699648) - Fixed Vector3 compilation error in unit tests (LP: #1700095) - Fixed a conflict around landscape autoselection (LP: #1700199) - Fixed HMS formatting - Fixed generating ISS script - Fixed tooltips for AstroCalc/Positions tool - Fixed dark nebulae parameters for AstroCalc/Positions tool - Fixed tool for saving options - Fixed crash when we on the spaceship - Fixed Solar system class to avoid conflicts and undefined behaviour - Fixed orientation angle and its data rendering (LP: #1704561) - Fixed wrong shadows on Jupiter's moons (Added special case for Jupiter's moons when they are in the shadow of Jupiter for compute magnitudes from Expl. Suppl. 2013 item) (LP: #1704421) - Fixed work AstroCalc/AltVsTime tool for artificial satellites (a bit slow solution though) - Fixed search by lists of DSO - Fixed translation switch issue for AstroCalc/Graphs tool (LP: #1705341) - Fixed trackpad behaviour on macOS though workaround - Fixed couple stupid bugs in InnoSetup script - Fixed morphology for SNR - Fixed issue in parsing of date format in AstroCalc/Phenomena tool - Fixed link for fileStructure.html file in README (LP: #1709523) - Fixed the calculation for drawing a reticle on a HiDPI display (Oculars plugin) - Fixed default option of units of measure for surface brighness to avoid possible artifacts on the macOS (LP: #1699643) - Fixed crash when comments is added into constellations_boundaries.dat file (LP: #1711229) - Fixed behaviour of 'Center on selected object' button (LP: #1712101) - Fixed impossibility to select a planet after Astronomical Calculations is activated (LP: #1712652) - Fixed crash with unknown star in asterism - Fixed cross-ids of 42 bright double stars (LP: #1655493) - Fixed magnitude computation for Jupiter's satellites - Updated InfoString feature - Updated sky brightness during solar eclipse (really, there are only few stars visible.) - Updated Maori sky culture - Updated list of names of deep-sky objects - Updated list of asterisms - Updated selection behaviour in Oculars plugin (avoid selection of objects outside ocular circle in eyepiece mode) - Updated behaviour of methods getEnglishName() and getNameI18n() for minor bodies - Updated behaviour of planetarium for support a new format of asteroid names - Updated behaviour of filters for DSO catalogs - Updated Solar System Editor plugin (support new format of asteroid names) - Updated RTS2 telecope driver in Telescope Control plugin. - Updated API docs - Updated limit of magnitude for Oculars plugin (Improvements) - Updated AstroCalc/WUT tool - Updated AstroCalc/Ephemeris tool - Updated rules for storing default settings - Updated rules for computation visibility of DSO hints - Updated plugins - Updated default values for material fade-in/fade-out times - Reduce warnings to one when loading OBJ with non-default w texture/vertex coordinates Binary packages to downloads: https://launchpad.net/stellarium/trunk/0.90.0
  4. 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.
  5. Since version 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.
  6. Yes, of course: https://bugs.launchpad.net/stellarium
  7. For small asterisms we plan to use coordinates, but this feature is not implemented yet.
  8. Let me show a screenshot - in the future release constellations and asterisms will be in separate layers. We use HIP numbers of stars for the asterisms and constellations to draw the stick figures. I'm sorry, but no special tool for create an asterisms or constellations (but we have this point in our wishlist). The Bookmarks tool (Alt+B) may be partially helpful here, because you can add sequence of stars with HIP numebrs to bookmarks and export this list as JSON file (this file might be opened by any simple text editor like notepad).
  9. Please be careful when installer of Stellarium is work - I think you are has ticked an option "Remove the main configuration file" in installer. Please go to DSO tab in "Sky and viewing options window" (F4) and check used catalogs.
  10. @SilverAstro just try press Alt+A and Alt+V if you are use development snapshots of Stellarium P.S. Please see attachment... Stellarium User Guide.pdf
  11. @SilverAstro it's not a portable version, but you can install it in separate directory (e.g. Stellarium Dev) P.S. Maybe you want to contribute asterisms? ;)
  12. I see StellariumScope use JNow epoch - what about Stellarium?
  13. Please check Stellarium
  14. OK, I've found where is I made misprint. The fix will be available for testing in next beta (I guess tomorrow).
  15. I'm sorry, but apparently I don't understand your problem.
  16. Yes, you can install it in separate directory.
  17. Why you do not use official stellarium.org website?
  18. Could you say what is confusing you? Maybe I can explain it?
  19. @cuivenion, @Dave In Vermont, please check version
  20. @cuivenion aha! I see now what you meant!
  21. See Wikipedia as start point: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Absolute_magnitude
  22. It's correct definition for stars, but for planets use different definition of absolute magnitude (brightness of body at distance of 1 AU from the Sun).
  23. It's correct value. We cannot "resolve 4K" issues, because developers doesn't have 4K devices.
  24. @cuivenion please show config.ini and screenshots
  25. cuivenion, could you deinstall version 0.15.2 before install version 0.16.0?
