Hello SGL, Tonight I uploaded Stellarium 0.19 version, every time I try to open it it seems to crash after coming up with a warning (picture below), could somebody explain this statement to me in simple English (if possible please?) and how i can over come it. I have tried it in 32 and 64 bit version but have same problem. Thank you for looking. Peter

  14. Hello SGL, Hopefully somebody will be able to help me out about wrong date? I went out last night to do some viewing, going thru my usual set ups (after getting GPS fix) I went to first star align (Arcturus, after putting scope in home position), telescope should have gone left but for some reason it went right! I re did set up on another two tries and both times the scope went right, er? Next time I let the scope go thru whole set up and decided to manually check date, time etc. Time was okay but for some reason date was 25 Aug 2099, time travel for the scope? I did have a viewing session after I did a manual input to change date. Any way I tried to set up again this morning, time was fine but for some reason date was reading 26th Aug 2099? Is there a problem with GPS system or do I have a problem with the hand controller or something else within the scope? If anybody has seen this before or has an idea of what is wrong I would be most grateful for an answer as I am at a total lost for ideas. Thank you in advance. Peter
