For some of the stars in the SAO star catalog, the program shows unusual behaviour. For example, I press F3 and search for the star SAO 5 in Cepheus. The program moves to the star's position, but no circle is shown around the star and when I click on the star, data is shown (like RA, Dec, magnitude etc) but no catalog number whatsoever (not SAO, HIP, HD). Same for example for SAO 72521 in Lacerta and many others.
It appears this happens for stars which are not included in the Extended Hiparchos catalog, and only appear in the Tycho-2 catalog.
Why is this happening? Any fix for this?
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
Objects in catalogs which are not included in Stellarium (like SAO) are looked up via SIMBAD.
Searching for SAO 5 identifies BD+79 801, pressing enter centers on the star marked with a selection circle. This is behaviour of version 0.15.1.
Ok, was using 0.14.0 will also test with the latest version. Thank you!
