    First of all, English is not my mother tongue, so excuse me if there are some
    mistakes.

    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
    redirected. Please update any bookmarks to use the new URL."_

    In the wiki, at the page Star Catalogue
    Format
    , we
    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
    bytes.

    Also, i have some technical questions to ask about the Stellarium's star
    catalogue files. Where can I do it? In this forum?

    thanks.

    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."
