Stellarium 0.15.2

Thanks Alex, you are correct. It takes about 3 minutes or more to calculate the Iridium Flares. 

I usually have Stellarium in full screen mode and when it's calculating irridiums there is no other response, can't minimise the screen etc to go and do something else while it calculates. So it seemed as though it had stopped running.

But now I know to be more patient. It works!

Hmm... Seems we need to introduce new config option (with GUI control) for change a depth of prediction for Iridium flares.

Stellarium 0.15.2 has been released

The Stellarium development team after three months of development is proud to announce the second correcting release of Stellarium in series 0.15.x - version 0.15.2. This version contains few closed bugs (ported from series 1.x) and some new additions and improvements.

Upgraded to 15.2 today from 15.1 - W10 64 bit.

New version loads up and I can scroll around the sky but as soon as I type anything into the search box it crashes.

Have downloaded again and reinstalled - same issue.

Any ideas ??

Hi Alex,

I see you added that user selectable search period for the Iridium Flare calculations as discussed above!

Works well for me. 

Many thanks for the fast responses :)

Just tried the Search here - no issues. Typed in M31, and it took me there with no problems.

Hmmm...

Loaded from 15.1 on Windows 8.1 64 bit.

Has you allowed network connections for Stellarium? Please send me log.txt and crash dump (or better - please fill bug report and attach those files there).

Could you check version 0.90.0.9222?

I have removed it and gone back to 0.15.1 as I needed it for imaging last night.

Now the clocks have gone forward thats it for me for the summer - I will reinstall the later version soon and report back.

Cheers

I found a minor bug, in fact I've come across it several time before and only just realised what it is. When using a reticule calculated for a long-fl scope with a small sensor (120mm scope, x3 barlow, 1/3" sensor) on a target like Saturn, it sometimes misses the target completely when you press space to centre it.

This is because Stellarium displays the target at the RA and DEC of the target on the set date, but centres the reticule very close to the J2000 RA and DEC.

I had the latest test-version, 0.90.0.9484, running fine - up until I loaded the extended 1,000,000+ DSO database. And that was too much for the poor thing - it froze the program solid and wouldn't respond to any command. So I had to shut it down & re-boot my computer.

I rolled-back my version to the 15.2 and all was well. Just thought you'd like to know.

Take care,

Dave

A fresh beta (v0.90.0.9495) has changes and optimizations for DSO stuff ;)

Just noticed, when I upgraded to 15.5, I lost all my scope, lens and sensor data!

<edit> and star catalogues 5 to 9!

 

Can I recover these rather than download them all again?
