    Hello Stellarium Users,

    actually I downloaded the Near Earth Asteroid Catalogue from the MPC with the
    Solar System plugin. Well I would like to increase the magnitude / luminosity
    of the asteroids for seeing them also when I zoom out (overview of the sky).
    Has someone an idea how to fix this problem? It thought I could be possible to
    deactivate this magnitude feature (all stars, planets, etc have the same
    size)? Increasing the absolute size does not effect very good.

    Currently I am using version 0.11.2.

    Thanks alot!
