    First of all, English is not my mother tongue, so excuse me if there are some

    For the webmaster(s) of the official website of stellarium:
    In the official website the link for the forum is not really good. http://so _ would be replaced by
    . It avoids a redirection on with the
    next message:
    "The forum address has changed, you have been automatically
    redirected. Please update any bookmarks to use the new URL."_

    In the wiki, at the page Star Catalogue
    , we
    can read in the Star Data Records section on the table Star Data Record
    Type 0
    : Name=b_v; Offset=9 while Name=x1; Offset=8; Length=4. The correct
    offset for b_v is 12 and the offset for next elements will need to be
    corrected too. This is properly with the Stellarium's star catalogue files
    table that indicate the file have a Data Record Size of 28

    Also, i have some technical questions to ask about the Stellarium's star
    catalogue files. Where can I do it? In this forum?

    The links to the SourceForge forum and the file folders have been updated.
    Thank you for the reminder!

    I'll look into the star catalog issue. It's probably a matter of changing the
    code and not updating the documentation.

    To contact the developers, you can use the public developers mailing list:

    Page reads as follows: "The Altitude/Azimuth coordinate system can be used to describe a direction of view (the azimuth angle) and a height in the sky (the altitude angle). The azimuth angle is measured clockwise round from due North. Hence North itself is °, East 90°, Southwest is 135° and so on. The altitude angle is measured up from the horizon."

    This should be corrected to read: "…North itself is 0°, East 90°, Southwest is 225° and so on."
