    My apologies if this is a silly quesiton.

    I can find the WLM galaxy using search (object found), however Stellarium does
    not show the result in the sky. Is there anyway to get WLM galaxy to show?
    (Wolf-Lundmark-Melotte Galaxy).

    Thanks for any help.

    There is no picture in Stellarium's nebulae folder and it does not have an ngc
    number so stellarium knows where it is but has nothing to display. When
    Stellarium can use the DSS photos it will show. However if you install
    Stellarium Virgo (it is a special version of 0.10.3) and enable the DSS you
    will see a picture of it.
