  1. Hello all! Some time ago I've added into Stellarium few catalogs with deep-sky objects and many users like it. Currently we (Stellarium's developers) planning list of features for implementation on different perspectives (far-, middle- and short time perspectives). One of directions of develop the planetarium is works with various catalogs (star and non-star objects). This is reason for my question for you: which catalogues of DSO you are using frequently? Any comments, notes and proposals for catalogues welcome!
  2. Please check it in next beta (v0.90.0.9620).
  3. Stellarium 0.16.0 is a stable version (based on Qt5.6 but it can still be built from sources with Qt5.4) that introduces some new features and closes 38 bug and wishlist reports. New features include - RemoteSync plugin, which allows running several connected instances of Stellarium. - Non-spherical models for solar system objects like asteroids and small moons. - Solar system config file is now split into two parts. - AstroCalc feature extension: What's Up Tonight, graphs, ... - DSO: Addition of catalogs of peculiar galaxies and planetary nebulae (standard edition of catalog contains over 83,000 objecs; extended edition of catalog contains over million objects) - New Skycultures: Belarusian, Hawaiian Star Lines - Telescope plugin: support for the RTS2 telescope system. - Location can now be read from a GPS device. A huge thanks to the people who helped us a lot by reporting bugs! Full list of changes: https://launchpad.net/stellarium/0.16/0.16.0
  4. Stellarium 0.16.0RC2 has been published...
  5. We plan to release Stellarium 0.16.0 around June 21 (at the moment first release candidate was published for the testing of planetarium and translations checking). This will an another major release with fixes of bugs and a few new important features - another one step to version 1.0. This version has many changes in the GUI and we added many new lines for translation. If you can assist with translation to any of the 140 languages which Stellarium supports, please go to Launchpad Translations and help us out: https://translations.launchpad.net/stellarium If you can help translate description of sky cultures and landscapes on your language then we would be grateful to you for this. You need a create your branch, add 'description.YOUR-LANG-CODE.utf8' files from description.en.utf8 and translate it! You can send translated description.YOUR-LANG-CODE.utf8 files to me for adding in Stellarium also. Binary packages for Windows/macOS and full list of changes you can find here: https://launchpad.net/stellarium/trunk/0.90.0 Thank you!
  6. A fresh beta (v0.90.0.9495) has changes and optimizations for DSO stuff
  7. This issue was fixed in version 0.15.1 or 0.15.2.
  8. Version should be more resposiable with loaded million DSOs and when DSO is not shown. For FOV 50 degrees and lesser Stellarium has good smooth movements :). P.S. Of course Stellarium will be slow when all million objects made visible on wide field of view.
  9. Extended edition of Stellarium's DSO Catalog contains 1065799 deep-sky objects in all...
  10. Stellarium with new sky culture and updated DSO catalog (added Arp, VV and PK data) is available for public testing... P.S. Stellarium support an extended and standard editions of the DSO catalog now. The standard edition is included by default and contains over 83000 objects. The extended edition download separately (by hands at the moment) and it contains over one million deep-sky objects.
  11. Are you tried the enable visibility of galactic grid and use zooming to solve the task?
  12. I want to get the feedback after test them by users...
  13. Stellarium with many optimizations in the source code and enhancement of AstroCalc features is available for public testing already...
  14. Thanks! I saw screenshots and found one nice feature - and we added similar feature into Stellarium already (with extensions)
  15. Stellarium with 3D models for moons & asteroids, with new plugin and serious changes in the GUI and code is available for public testing already...
  16. Stellarium is here already... The main changes: optimizations in AstroCalc tool, tool for import/export bookmarks, updates names of DSO's, fixed various bugs, added customizable buttons...
  17. Stellarium is out today and the main updates in AstroCalc and Bookmarks tools again...
  18. Stellarium is out today and he has few interesting updates in AstroCalc and Bookmarks tools...
  19. A fresh beta can slew an artificial satellites through RTS2 Plus has some improvements for Oculars plugin and AstroCalc tool.
  20. I'm sorry, but read the original phrase: Where is problem here and how Stellarium related to it?
  21. As you know we use version 0.90.0.xxxx for "unstable binary packages" of Stellarium and those packages may have a new interesting features for testing. In any way version 0.90.0.xxxx has a lot fixes of bugs and it may be interested for users, who are preferred used "bleeding edge" of software. I've created this topic for informing community about new interesting features for testing for one side, and get a feedback (with reports about problems, of course) from testers-voluteers in other side. Let's try make Stellarium better by together. Today we published version with 3 interesting features: - support GPS devices to getting coordinates for observer location - support RTS2 in Telescope Control Plugin - support to asterisms in skycultures (Alt+A and Alt+V to toggle lines and names visibility) Binary packages to donwloads (and full list of changes): https://launchpad.net/stellarium/trunk/0.90.0
  22. Could you check version
