outputting as list of coordinate.

  • Anonymous - 2012-07-25

    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.

    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");
    ra= PData["ra"];
    dec = PData["dec"];
    mag = PData["vmag"];
    size = PData["size"];
    size = size * deg
    if (ra<0)
    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");
    LabelMgr.setLabelShow(txt1, true);

    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.
