Okay--LoadSkyImage allows me to put an image at a particular RA/DEC point, but
of course the image then tracks with the sky. Under the the old
stratoscripting, I could place an image at a fixed Altitude/Azimuth and it
would just stay there with the sky moving behind it. Is there a way to do this
easily in the "new" scripting language (of course I could move the image in
the sky so that it appears to be still, but that seems pretty ugly and
clunky). It seems like it ought to be something like "LoadLandscapeImage"
rather than LoadSkyImage, but I can't see anything like this or a way to do
Thanks for any help.
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
ScreenImageMgr.createScreenImage("logo", "yourimage.png", 50, 150, 1.0, false, 1.0, 1.0);
you can see example scripts by Matthew Gates here:
There are 5 examples by the names screen_image#.ssc
Thanks for your suggestion. This works but it doesn't really do what I'm
after. I want to imagine that there is an obstruction--like a tree or a
billboard at a particular place (due east at a height for example). I want to
place an image there to see how the sky is blocked. I know the altitude and
position of the blockage for a a particular observer. ScreenImageMgr places an
image that is at a particular place on the screen, not at a particular place
in the sky (or better said, landscape). No matter which way I'm facing the
image is always in the same spot on the screen. Other thoughts?
See this question:
cfasano : Bit late to answer, yet this might help someone.
A new sky image api has been added to stellarium (loadSkyImageAltAz) that
should do what you want to do here. The image is drawn using an azimuthal
frame, and is not tracked with the sky movement.
