Stellarium is fun to play with, but please correct me if this i wrong. It's
I've installed all star-catalogues in the settings, I've also downloaded some
new star-catalogues namn named stars_4/5/6 and so on and placed them in the
right folder to Stellarium, I assume this is only stars. Is it possibe to
download planets/moons to? I think it's ridiculous, moons to Pluto are
missing, and also a lots of moons to Uranus, and so on.
I have tested other planetarium softwares, but everything else looks ugly, but
they're updated. I like Stellarium, do I have to change to get updated?
Please guide me throw this.
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
Which version of Stellarium you use?
But in version 0.11.3 Pluto already have 3 moons and Uranus have few moons.
Possible you have ssystem.ini from very old version of Stellarium - just
delete this file or restore defaults via Solar System Editor plugin.
I renamed ssystem.ini to ssystem.ini.bak and restarted Stellarium, Stellarium
crached at start. I renamed the file to ssystem.ini.
Should I delete this file and reinstall Stellarium?
I have never used the Solar System Editor plugin.
Uranus has 27 moons according to Wikipedia. And they found 2 new moons
orbiting Pluto. Stellarium can't find any of these.
The size of these celestial objects wouldn't matter, it's still confirmed
objects since long time back.
My questions is, why ain't Stellarium updated with these objects?
I'm a newbie at astronomy so hope you have my understanding.
Crash after renaming of ssystem.ini - it's very strange! From which website
you download Stellarium?
P.S. Please try update your ssystem.ini from this URL - http://bazaar.launchp
I always download Stellarium från www.stellarium.org
I replaced the ssystem.ini file with the one you suggested.
However I can't see any differences.
I was hoping to see one of Uranus smallest moons named Cupid, it's only 18 km
in diameter. Don't know if Stellarium cover such small moons (inner
Are there any separate catalogues I can download? I have downloaded the star-
Thank you very much for your help!
The ssystem.ini file can be edited in a text file by the user.
If you need to add a new item that is not included in the updates you can
enter the parameters yourself at any time.
The orbital elements for Cupid are incomplete. There haven't been enough
observations of that moon to calculate a set of orbital elements. There are no
values for longitude of the ascending node, longitude of pericenter and mean

I would like to point out that the orbital elements for asteroids 1 to 4 are
very outdated: orbit_Epoch = 2454200.5 thats 2007-04-10 although the file was
last changed 2012-07-14 (version 0.9.0?).
Thank you all for your responses, my questions are answered.
As I said, I'm new to this type of software, again I appreciate your help.
I will also look deeper into ssystem.ini to get a better understanding to the
