Looks like a very nice program
Yeah, I've been using it for quite a while. There's a portable too. This is the 0.11.4 version
They'll update it pretty soon.
Earth from Mars on Xmas Day with Stellarium.
After a few problems I have uninstalled 0.12.0 & reinstalled 0.11.4. Luckily I had kept the old installers for both x64 & x86 versions. It has some rendering bugs & I couldn't synchronise Stellarium's time with system time on two separate computers. Returning to 0.11.4 has solved these problems, so I doubt it is just my set-ups.
The Stellarium development team is proud to announce the release of version 0.12.0 of Stellarium.
This release brings some interesting new features:
- New rendering engine (Now you can see shadows on planets surfaces).
- New key-binding engine (Now all key-bindings can be edited).
- Improvements to scripting engine.
- Improvements to DSO
- Improvements to search tool
- Improved accuracy for archaeo-astronomical events
There have also been a large number of bug fixes and GUI improvements. A huge thanks to all community bug reporters.
We are strongly recommended resetting all Stellarium settings if you upgrade your previous installation!
I tried totally fresh installs & still couldn't get the time to synchronise.
You can get 0.11.4 here.
You know it could just be me, but I feel like compared to the older versions, this program has gotten a bit worse in performance. The images are rather muddy in appearance and "travelling" to and from various objects seems to be much slower and often times is a "start and stop" experience. I've got a far better computer than I did back in those old versions as well.
It is. Between it and Google Earth it's hard for me to get stuff done
I pair this program with one of these;
Nothing like a Dobsonian 8" to bring everything up nice, without being too bulky to take out as much as you want.
Nothing much better than packing up one of these babies and heading up into the mountains for a night, right? I've got a Celestron C11-SGT that I can get lost in for hours on end.
