Now this is just plain cool.
I love it. The only little thing that I think would make things a little easier is to be able to type your coordinates in manually. Also, perhaps the option for entering them in degrees, minutes, and seconds or even degrees and fractional minutes.
Thanks for the great software!
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
If you edit the config.ini file (in ~/.stellarium for *nix systems, I'm not sure about windows or OS X), you can type the coordinates in. Look for this section [init_location]. The longitude and latitude are specified here using degrees (+ for N or E, - for S or W), minutes and seconds. You can also specify the altitude. For example:
latitude = +55 14'30.00"
longitude = -01 37'6.00"
altitude = 53
In OSX you can ctrl-click on the application, select 'show package contenst' and navigate to 'contents->resources->config->default_config.ini'.
In this file you can edit the longitude and latitude with a text editor
