It Stellarium scope works fine for me with Stellarium 18.1.

I didn't have to do anything special.  Make sure you have the Telescope Control Plugins enabled and set to load at startup.

      Hi SGL,
      is there any plugin or setting that can (more) accurately depict views through an eyepiece?
      I'm aware of the oculars, but what I'm after is the shimmer of the planets, dimming of DSOs when using smaller scopes, planetary detail dependent on telescope size etc.
      Thanks

      Hi Everyone,
      I am trying to setup the off axis guider in stellarium I've entered all details for my QHY5L II and checked the off axis guider box in the config. However, for the love of God I am not able to make the OAG red box appear in the display. No clue whats happening. My main imaging camera is a QHY9M.
      Any help will be appreciated.
