I found a great pano photograph here:
I'm not sure what the copyright is on images at APOD, but I think it would make a great landscape.
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
It is not an offence if you just use it personally (at place other than the public) and do not publish it on the Net. Commercial use is forbidden. If you really want to share it to millions of Stellarium users you have to contact the author of the picture and ask for his/her own will first.
Yes it is beautifull indeed.
I chopped it up in 512 pixels by 512 pixels blocks, which made 8 blocks, but can anyone tell me how to make it work in stellarium?
I also erased the sky (made it transparent so to say), by making a path in photoshop etc, and saved all parts as .png.
I put the parts in the folder landscapes, but i thought so, that doesn't do the trick. i would like to contribute with more landscapes, but i have to know how to make the blocks working in stellarium. Anyone?
There is presently a small amount of information in the user guide here:
It is quite easy really if you already have the 8 pics. I have done it a couple of times with my own generated panorama. It is just a matter of duplicating one of the existing sections of the landscape.ini with your own information.
I think my procedure is detailed in the latest version of the user guide. In any case if you contact me direct I will send you a working copy of mine. To contact me you will find an e-mail address on my web site below.
