Stellarium v0.15.1.1 (x86/x64) | 163/166 MB
Stellarium is a comprehensive utility that helps users explore planets and constellations in a 3D environment. This open-source planetarium gives you details about celestial objects, simulates solar and lunar eclipses, and displays Messier objects and the Milky Way.
Over 120000 stars from the Hipparcos Catalogue with name and infos for the brightest ones.
Planets and major satellites in real time (position computation now accurate enough for eclipse or transit simulation).
Drawing of the 88 constellations with their names.
Mythological figures of the 88 constellations.
Textured displaying of more than 70 nebulas (Orion, M31 etc..).
Photo-realistic Milky Way.
Skinable landscape (ground, fog, mapping of fisheye pictures).
Ultra fast realistic atmosphere rendering (Sunsets, sunrises etc.).
Automatic eye adaptation to sky luminance using physiologic model.
Grids in Equatorial and Azimuthal coordinates.
Equator and ecliptic coordinates lines.
Smooth real time intuitive navigation.
Powerfull zoom to see planet and nebula like in a telescope.
Equatorial and altazimutal mount mode.
Standard perspective and wide angle (fisheye) projections modes (e.g for planetarium dome).
Time control (real time and accelered time modes).
Graphical menu for simple utilisation.
Clikable stars, planets and nebulas with informations.
Windowed and fullscreen modes.
Full dome (180?) projection mode for planetariums.
Text user interface for planetariums.
Based on Qt 5.6.2 (Visual Studio Express 2013) with media support.
The Digital Sky Survey (DSS) can be shown (requires online connection).
AstroCalc is now available from the main menu and gives interesting new computational insight.
Stellarium can act as Spout sender (important for multimedia environments; Windows only).
Fixed: wait() and waitFor() in the Scripting Engine no longer inhibits performance of moves.
Fixed: DE430/431 DeltaT may be OK now.
ArchaeoLines also offers two arbitrary declination lines.
Added support of time zones dependent by location.
Added new skyculture: Sardinian.
Added updates and improvements in catalogs.
Added improvements in the GUI.
Added cross identification data for stars from Bright Star Catalogue, 5th Revised Ed.
