Is it possible with stellarium to out put the display as a list of X,Y
coordinates along with brightness and apparent diamatier, rather than
rendering to the screen?
Is there any examples of the API's in code.
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
Stellarium's main point is displaying pretty pictures. There are other free
astronomy programs that may be able to do what you need.
Hi Bogdan, could you recommend some of this programs able to output the coordinate of an object in time? Thanks
Stellarium can do this now. Using scripts
Copy the following highlighted text into notepad and save as a .ssc file in the script folder
// Author: Qam1
// Name: Mars to Log file
// License: Public Domain
// Description: Writes Mars Info to Log File
// Version: 1.0
// Made on Stellarium 14.3
pi = 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510;
deg = 180/pi;
dd = core.getDate();
PData = core.getObjectInfo("Mars");
dec = PData["dec"];
mag = PData["vmag"];
size = PData["size"];
size = size * deg
ra = ra + 360
core.debug("Mars on " + dd);
core.debug("RA = " + ra);
core.debug("Dec = " + dec);
core.debug("Mag = " + mag);
core.debug("Size = " + size);
txt1 = LabelMgr.labelScreen("Written to Log!!!", 400, 20, false, 75, "#FF0000");
Then open the last run log file with notepad in Stellarium's folder in the start menu
More things with core.getObjectInfo
You can even use core.output() and read output.txt only. I just don't know why a 4-year old thread is excavated instead of googling a bit.
