    Hi, is there an option to export all settings for main program (e.g. location) and oculars plug-in to copy to a new computer?

    I can see the 'save settings' button but after reading the manual this is just for use on the same PC not to move settings. Happy to copy folders etc if that is what is needed to make this work.

    Thanks and Regards

    Look for the stellarium folder in your user area. This contains all the changes you have made to your configuration. Copy this to the same part of the user area in the new computer then install stellarium in the new computer.

      Excellent, thanks.

      For me with win 7 that was the location below, which should work for all. The appdata folder is hidden in windows normally but you can show via options if you want.

      C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Stellarium
