First of all, English is not my mother tongue, so excuse me if there are some
For the webmaster(s) of the official website of stellarium:
In the official website the link for the forum is not really good. http://so
urceforge.net/forum/forum.php?forum_id=278769 _ would be replaced by http://sourceforge.net/proje
cts/stellarium/forums/forum/278769. It avoids a redirection on sourceforge.net with the
next message: "The forum address has changed, you have been automatically

In the wiki, at the page Star Catalogue
can read in the Star Data Records section on the table Star Data Record
Type 0: Name=b_v; Offset=9 while Name=x1; Offset=8; Length=4. The correct
offset for b_v is 12 and the offset for next elements will need to be
corrected too. This is properly with the Stellarium's star catalogue files
table that indicate the file stars_0_0v0_1.cat have a Data Record Size of 28
Also, i have some technical questions to ask about the Stellarium's star
catalogue files. Where can I do it? In this forum?

Please don't fill out this field.

code and not updating the documentation.
To contact the developers, you can use the public developers mailing list:
Page http://www.stellarium.org/wiki/index.php/Astronomical_Concepts reads as follows: "The Altitude/Azimuth coordinate system can be used to describe a direction of view (the azimuth angle) and a height in the sky (the altitude angle). The azimuth angle is measured clockwise round from due North. Hence North itself is °, East 90°, Southwest is 135° and so on. The altitude angle is measured up from the horizon."
This should be corrected to read: "…North itself is 0°, East 90°, Southwest is 225° and so on."
Thanks! Typo was fixed.
