select a constellation and shooting stars

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    Congratulations for this fantastic software. I wish I had had Stellarium when I was teaching Astronomy at college level.

    Is it possible to select a constellation and show the lines and drawing only for the selected constellation?

    How do we see shooting stars ?

    If you intend to have a french version for hte Heilp and Tool menus I could do the translation.

      To show one constellation, set "flag_constellation_pick" to true in your config.ini file. Then when using Stellarium, select a star that is part of the line drawing and only that constellation line drawing/label/art will draw.

      To see meteor showers, hit the "9" key. It will toggle through increasingly heavy showers and back to the normal background rate. An improved meteor shower simulation is in the next version in CVS.
