stellarium

real-time photo-realistic sky generator

Description:

Stellarium renders 3D photo-realistic skies in real-time. With Stellarium, you really see what you can see with your eyes, binoculars or a small 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,
- plug-in support: Stellarium comes with 8 plug-ins by default, including:
- artificial satellites plug-in (updated from an on-line TLE database),
- ocular simulation plug-in (shows how objects look like in a given ocular),
- Solar System editor plug-in (imports comet and asteroid data from the MPC),
- telescope control plug-in (Meade LX200 and Celestron NexStar compatible).
Stellarium should not be used for very high accurate calculation or ephemerids like eclipse predictions. However, it is the ideal program to prepare an observation evening with naked eye, binocular, or small telescope.

5 I am a big time fan of astronomy. this piece of software is amazing. I use this anytime i am planing a night out with the telescope. This software helps plan what objects i am going to view and where they will be in the sky on the night. I can also plan viewing nights in advanced. this is simply amazing software.

5 Wonderful software to help someone view the heavens above. I have been using Stellarium for many years on Linux and Windows (at present I have LinuxMint 15 - Cinnamon and Windows 7). Living in the country away from all the city lights, this has helped me find stars and planets. In July 2013, I noticed a very bright red star on the western horizon just after sundown. Fired up Stellarium and found out it was the planet Venus...cool! It contains a large database of cities so one can input their location, or somewhere closeby, to more accurately view the heavens. There are many addons to enhance Stellarium's features. I'm buying a telescope before 2013 is gone just to be able to utilized the telescope control plug in for Meade or Celestron telescopes. Discover the location of stars, planets, nebulas and galaxies with Stellarium.
