    Sorry for creating 2 threads but they are quite different.My question is simple - do you plan to make version of stellarium for symbian or windows mobile? This is great application and having it on my mobile phone will greately help me during my observations.

      (Note: I'm not part of Stellarium's developer team.)

      I don't think so. Currently the developers are preoccupied with fixing bugs and moving towards v.1.0.0. Adapting Stellarium for the limited capabilities of mobile devices will be a rather time-consuming task. Though in theory, it would be easier than rewriting it from scratch - Stellarium is built on Qt and OpenGL, and both Symbian and Windows Mobile support a version of Qt and OpenGL ES.

      Anyway, why would you need a photo-realistic sky on the tiny screen of a mobile device? Stellarium is more a "sky show" than a "sky map" application. ;)

      Recently there was a similar question about Pandora:
      https://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_name=20090311170151.5c926f73%40pc1.local&forum_name=stellarium-pubdevel

      Porting Stellarium for Pandora looks a bit more feasible, but again, it depends on finding someone willing to spend time and other resources to do it.
