  2. Hello everyone, I developed an Android app - Telescope.Touch - capable of connecting and controlling INDI/INDIGO devices, for those of you who use Raspberry/Astroberry/StellarMate. It's really powerful, and a lot of new features are in the works. Features: Mobile planetarium derived from the Sky Map project Mount and focuser controller with directional pads and speed controls Receive images from INDI CCDs Database full of objects to which you can point the telescope directly from the app INDI control panel compatible with every device Aladin Sky Atlas preview and altitude graphs Astronomy utilities: polaris hour angle, compass, red flashlight Languages: English, Italian and French. Sky maps are translated in almost every language. It is available on Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=io.github.marcocipriani01.telescopetouch A Pro version is also available, mainly to support the app's development: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=io.github.marcocipriani01.telescopetouchpro I hope you enjoy it! I'm open to feedback and improvements!

  8. I’m going to do a 1 or 2 month tour of Europe in my camper van this spring and I would like to visit a planetarium either in Europe or the UK, preferably avoiding London and Paris or other major cities with low emission zones. I visited the planetarium in London when I was a child and thoroughly enjoyed it but I see it is now closed. I am planning to visit the space centre in Leicester on my way home which seems to get mixed reviews regarding having a lot aimed at children. I was surprised at how many planetariums there actually are with a google search. Can anyone recommend one, or a good public observatory? TIA

  12. It looks like my 2,5 years daughter shows an interest in learning astronomy. Already knows names of all planets and most important moons of solar system. I would like her to learn constellations (she can already identify Orion) and I thought apart from showing her patterns on the sky as well as on the piece of paper it would be nice to get home planetarium. Does anyone have any recommendations for good quality one?
  13. Today Stellarium's development team published version 0.90.0.9732 with support of outlines for deep-sky objects. We use the compatible with SkyChart (Cartes du Ciel) format of file for storing an outlines data for deep-sky objects. For example the outline for M42 is represented by this lines: 05.56401 -05.49880 start M 42 05.56759 -05.39201 vertex 05.56635 -05.31749 vertex 05.57158 -05.21922 vertex 05.57601 -05.21716 vertex 05.58830 -05.30164 vertex 05.59140 -05.34341 vertex 05.59028 -05.37076 vertex 05.59008 -05.38175 vertex 05.59581 -05.37159 vertex 05.59943 -05.47123 vertex 05.59912 -05.65838 vertex 05.59520 -05.73212 vertex 05.58490 -05.68102 vertex 05.56948 -05.57675 end First column is right ascension in decimal hours, the second column is declination in decimal degrees and third column is command (start, vertex, end). The command 'start' has name of DSO also. Our outlines.dat file was partially got from CdC/SkyChart. Now we want to get a volunteers, who can help us create a good outlines for big deep-sky objects for two projects - Stellarium and Cartes du Ciel/SkyChart.
  14. 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 0.90.0.9270 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
  15. 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
  16. For years I've been a loyal user of Stellarium, it's very simple to use and provides me with most of what I need. I would unreservedly recommend it as an essential tool to anyone starting out in astronomy. The great folks behind it are very active and continually working on improvements and new features. But there are several other free planetarium programs including Cartes du Ciel and C2A and a few more. I discovered C2A a few days ago, and it has some interesting features, especially for observation planning. There a pop-ups to show when an object will be visible, a graphic of Moon phases etc. and a built-in log book facility. You can also add a very wide range of object catalogues. So, what are people using? And what are the pros and cons of different programs?
  17. As in the Title, there was a planetarium on the antiques and collectables television programme, "Four Rooms" tonight - just finished. Sold for £1000 but could have done better at up to £3000. The seller was happy though as he wanted the money for a school to buy an astro camera for their observatory and that was the amount he wanted.
  18. A first release candidate of Stellarium 0.15.2 was published today. Could you test how he works on your computer?
