Hi Alex

Thanks again for the continued hard work.
I have had a few issues with the latest version as follows.

When attempting to import comets using the import elements dialog, I get a strange issue once I try and click "Get orbital elements".
I select Comets and select the bookmark but when I click the button to import them and bring up the next dialog nothing happens. This works fine in the previous version however.

The other issue that I have had this evening when doing a fresh install on a windows 10 pro system is that I get a strange SSL issue when trying to download the additional star catalog updates.
I am unsure at this stage as to if this is an issue with the fact that it was being done from within a virtual machine as I am the process of recording a tutorial.

Any help on these would be great

Mark

I've had a (quick) look and I can't find the answer - how do I copy the oculars from one pc to another?

I already have a master config.ini file that I copy to other pcs / laptops to keep them all setup the same, but this doesn't copy the sensors and telescopes from the oculars plugin.

@Jonk see modules/Oculars/ocular.ini file in same place as config.ini

Hi Alexander,

I just installed v19.2 on my new laptop (Win10 Pro, i7, 16M RAM), but am having a couple of issues:

  1. The extra star catalogues won't install from within the application (Configurations Window Extras tab), so I copied the cat files 5 to 8 from a previous instal (v15.2) on another laptop to the Appdata/stellarium/stars/default directory, but they have no effect on stars displayed when I run the application. When I check the Configurations Window Extras tab it is updated to 'get cataloque 9 of 9' but when I hit the button it errors with the message 'Error downloading stars 8 Error creating SSL contect ()' 
  2. I copied my occulars.ini file into the modules/oculars folder and initially all seemed correct, but then I noticed that the off axis display is not showing for my QSI camera, even though all the correct details are entered. I tried creating a new sensor, but the OAG overlay is still not showing.

Any ideas how to resolves these please?

Geof

Yes, this is known issue - https://github.com/Stellarium/stellarium/issues/786

The problem with creating SSL context caused by wrong version of openSSL libraries within Stellarium package (It's sad, but the problem was found a week after release ūüėē ). I've pushed the fix of problem today (https://github.com/Stellarium/stellarium/commit/9c87c1495b859bb83dcac17f01163dc248c6e8d9) and it will be available for testing in next beta (tomorrow/next weekend?).

Some workaround for you: https://www.cloudynights.com/topic/681465-stellarium-star-catalog-manual-installation-instructions/

This is other bug, caused by refactoring the code and founded after release - https://github.com/Stellarium/stellarium/issues/784

The fix available in beta versions.

Hi Alexander,

I think that I've eventally got the star cats working via manual download. I'll look out for the beta for the OAG overlay.

Many thanks,

Geof

Does installing the beta overwrite all the existing settings meaning that I'll have to import them again, or will they survive the update?

Yes and no - just read the proposals by installer ;)

Well I downloaded and tried to run it, but got about 20+ errors, which were all meaningless to me so I gave up.....ūüėē

Which errors? O_o

I don't know, just lots of boxes all telling me that something wasn't working. I just clicked ok to them all then exited the install, so as not to mess up what I already have

      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 System.Dynamic.ComRuntimeHelpers.CheckThrowException(Int32 hresult, ExcepInfo& excepInfo, UInt32 argErr, String message)
         to CallSite.Target(Closure , CallSite , ComObject , Boolean )
         to ASCOM.DriverConnect.ConnectForm.btnConnect_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e) in C:\ASCOM Build\Export\ASCOM.DriverConnect\ConnectForm.cs:line 268
      Dispose             Disposing of device
      ReleaseComObject    Releasing COM instance
      ReleaseComObject    Completed release. Count: 0
      GC Collect          Starting garbage collection
      GC Collect          Completed garbage collection
       
      "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:
      https://www.amazon.com/Telescope-CP2102-Adapter-Control-Console/dp/B077G37VL1/
      PC Specs:
      Windows 10 Pro, GTX 970, 8GB Ram(DDR4), i7 6700 3.4Ghz
       
      Looking forward for your help, thanks in advance,
      dragorom7.

      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)
