Thanks Alex, great facility and much appreciated.

Still one irritating thing, the drop down window for oculars sensors etc could really do with being opaque as clicking on it can too easily select a new target instead of the thing you're trying to click on.

Please give us more details to reproduce the issue.

Quite easy to see, if for instance I try to click on the arrow to change the telescope it is too easy to click on a star instead and then the focus moves to that star.

That's odd Dave. That used to be a problem but was fixed several releases ago. Any objects behind the drop down oculars window are ignored. At least in the 'standard' operating mode. Are you using ANGLE or MESA mode? Maybe they react differently.

Dunno, downloaded a new version recently but haven't tried it yet, will have a go and check.

Thank you for the update, i'm a massive fan of the program and use it very regularly. My only grip is that there aren't enough images for me to plan ahead of time whether the object will fit in the FOV of my camera and scope for imaging. More images in the software would be a welcome addition. Not sure if it's even needed by many or possible but i'm just saying my peace here :)

Are you tried use Oculars plugin (Image sensor frame) with DSS or HiPS?

Sorry Alexander, a bit naive in this subject matter. How do i check if i'm using it with DSS or HiPS?

Hmm... apparently you did not used it before. 

OK. A short instructions for using both - DSS and HiPS.

1. Press F2 -> "Extras" tab -> mark "Show DSS button" and "Show HiPS button"; "Main" tab -> press "Save as defaults"

2a. To use DSS you may click on DSS button on bottom bar. 

2b. To use HiPS you need select preferred survey. For example let's use DSS too.

3. Press F4 -> "Surveys" tab -> Deep-sky -> Find and mark "DSS colored"

4. To use colored DSS survey you may click on HiPS button on bottom bar.

Ah much appreciated Alexander. Clearly I wasn't aware of this feature so will give it a go shortly. Can't thank you enough. ?

Terrific upgrades, i'm big fan, have used this from start of my space exploration.  Nothing terribly important, im probably doing something wrong. When pulling asteroid coordinates and times from MPC, they end up off a bit somehow after manually entering dec/ra coordinates in Stellarium at listed time and position.  Below is example of Juno should be in center but coordinates are off little.  I planned to manually entering coordinates in mount to see where Juno landed but was clouded out tonight.  Again, not terribly important, just unsure why they don't match up.

First problem - I don't see coordinates of location. Second problem - why you compare equatorial coordinates for different epoch (JNow and J2000.0 on screenshots)?

Coordinates of location info is in 1st post above highlighted in red, not second post.  Somehow ended up with 2 posts.  Both are J2000 coordinates one where Stellarium thinks Juno is and one where MPC thinks Juno is.  Thank you!

I meant geographic coordinates. Juno is not far away and horizontal parallax will be introduce the error for equatorial coordinates. Where you see J2000.0 epoch for MPC coordinates? ;)

I think I understand now, the MPC RA/Dec coordinates are not J2000. Thank you.

Hi Alexander,

I'm very happy with 18.2! Many thanks.

For a future  version: Is it be possible to increase the resolution of the Moon?  That would be really nice!

Bye

Ah, I was referring to the built-in Moon because it has relief and dynamic shadows. I think it would look very impressive at a higher resolution.

      Hello, i am new to this forum, i made my account here because i need help.
      So few weeks ago i ordered a USB to Serial cable to be able to Control my Telescope with my computer using stellarium.
      It arrived today.
      So i made my Star Alignment, then i plugged the cable to my Telescope and Computer, i installed the Cable driver and ASCOM Platform + ASCOM Celestron Driver.
      I started DriverConnect.exe and put the Celestron Driver i downloaded, and did the properties informations ( had to tick on "Advanced Setup" and "Show All COM Ports" ) and i put "COM8" on "COM Port", then i pressed "OK" and then "Connect"
      Result:
      Create              Creating device
      Connected           Connecting to device
      Error               System.Exception: Connect to COM1 failed, no Celestron scope detected

         to CallSite.Target(Closure , CallSite , ComObject , Boolean )

      "Connect to COM1 failed, no Celestron scope detected"

      In Stellarium i set-up everything, the plug-in and restarted the app, then added my telescope  and i says it's "connected" but i can't find my telescope.
       
      Telescope:
      Celestron NexStar 127SLT
      The Cable i bought:

      Looking forward for your help, thanks in advance,

      So I'm referring to the main astro-softwares that you use during your sessions on your phone or tablet, and found that most of people use mainly those two softwares on their phones. Laptop versions of the software are different products and are not the focus of this topic.
      So which do you use and why?
       
      My experience:
      I personally have Stellarium plus, and the free version of SkySafarai, so I have an understanding of how the user-interface of both works, I have been researching the extra features in the SkySafari Pro, and have figured the following so far (please correct me if I'm wrong):
      * I'm aware that both let you control your GoTo telescopes
      * I personally find current version of Stellarium to be more user friendly and easier to navigate the sky manually , could be the configured settings though
      * SkySafari has more options to the search bar, e.g. "Tonight's Best" based on your location, also a menu of Messier catalog with a highlight of those currently visible at your time and location, others like best deep sky objects
      * SkySafari has this wonderful feature of creating an observing list, very helpful to plan your session and share and download with/from others
      * Stellarium Plus has a database of around 1.69 billion stars,while SkySafari 6 Pro has around 100 milion starts (don't think it's important as most of them aren't visible in amateur telescopes, I think I read somewhere that only 25 million stars are possible to observe with our telescopes, up to 15th mag, wonder if any of you have tried to push this limit)
