#1 Postby Stevo » Thu Jan 04, 2018 5:05 pm

We now have Stellarium 0.17.0 in the main repository, since it is working well in tests. Major changes in this release include:

Added support for nomenclature of planetary surface (SOCIS 2017 project)
Added improvements for AstroCalc tool
Added improvements for Oculars plugin
Added improvements for Exoplanets plugin
Added INDI support for Telescope Control plugin
Updated code and data


Stellarium is a free open source planetarium for your computer. It shows a realistic sky in 3D, just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope.

Some features:
- default star catalogue with over 600 thousand stars,
- information about the brightest stars (spectral type, distance, etc.),
- downloadable star catalogue extensions, for up to 210 million stars,
- all New General Catalogue (NGC) objects,
- images of almost all Messier objects and the Milky Way,
- real time positions of the planets and their satellites,
- 13 different cultures with their constellations,
- artistic illustrations of the 88 Western constellations,
- very realistic atmosphere, sunrise and sunset,
- 7 panoramic landscapes (more can be made or downloaded from the website),
- scripting with ECMAScript,
- and much more.
