When creating alternative distribution of Stellarium, please make very clear
that this is not the official distribution and don't re-use the same version
CHANGELOG: Fixed various bugs including missing libsdc++-6.dll.
I downloade your "tonights best version" and installed it.
However as yet I have not discovered what it does other than a list if
I think a feature like this is useful and I have made similar features to
these as scripts in the old script engine. Using a sub program I wrote in
Qbasic that can sort the suitable items in an area of the sky by type, size,
magnitude etc. by reading the old ngc2000.dat file. I also believe an editable
script would be a simpler way to do it.
Please note that any Qbasic scripts created in the script engine that uses
qt'swebkit will NOT work, due to a lack of dependencies (QtWebKit).
The only feature I have added is the "Tonight's Best" function. You can find
this under SEARCH >> TONIGHT'S BEST.
I have open-sourced my mod under the GPL, download it and view it at your

I see the "tonights best " in the search folder that lists a number of
Headings but how do you access them. Clicking does nothing.
So far only VIEWING tonight's best objects has been added. I'm currently
working on creating a plugin for stellarium to navigate to the selected
REVISED: You can always copy the objects name and search for it for the time
I take it then that you have just created a menu and will make it do something
at a later date. That's OK as long as I know that is the case.
It's not even a "menu". It's a browser window with a RSS feed from some
website in it.
All I got was a big nothing when I tried to use the window entry
Sometimes the site's down, it's true, it IS an rss feed from tonightssky. The
feed was easy but including qtwebkit was EXTREMELY hard to do, being that it
wasn't a qmake project. Luckily tonightssky has an ra/dec api which I will
eventually create a plugin for.
