First of all I'd like to say thanks for making a great tool. I've just started
on astrophotography and it's proved invaluable. Also, it's just very nice to
look out. It's awesome :)
I'm just wondering, is there any way (or way to mod in) to:
'favourite' a star, similar to planting a circle and name around a planet, also so it would show up automatically the next time the program starts
track a stars path, so I can see where it will head over the next 6 hours or so (again similar to showing planet orbits)
add time notes to orbits, like hourly notches on the orbit to show where the body would be.
I can sort of imprecisely do these things using the advance time and checking
the grids and whatnot, but it would make a bit more handy for some of the
stuff I'm doing.
Thanks again guys, I love Stellarium :)
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
There is not, no. And a stars path will always be a parabola (or circle for
circumpolar stars), so the orbit line would look near-identical for all stars,
just offset from the pole. Just like the equilateral grid.
Looking at the equatorial grid code would show one possible way to implement
the feature for any given star, but, unless you're able to implement it
yourself, I'd be surprised if any current developer would be interested enough
to do it.
Hey, everybody - I'm trying to figure out how to ask a question. I tried to
start a new topic, but was told I had to make a reply.
Sorry if this is really dumb, but would appreciate some guidance.
