    I have noticed that it is impossible to visit the North pole on Earth. One can
    go to 89° and 30', but not further north. Same with South pole. Is there any
    way to fix this?

    I think you must be referring to the "click on the map" method of setting the
    location. It's difficult to be precise here and there may just not be a pixel
    which is aligned exactly to 90 degrees N or S.

    However, you can set the latitude by typing in values in the latitude spinbox
    in the location dialog. You can also click the spinbox, and then use the up
    and down cursor keys to change the current value (D / M / S). Once you're
    done, enter in a name (e.g. "North Pole") and click the add to list button. If
    you want Stellarium to start at this location, also click the "use as default"
    checkbox.

    I have tried all that, but still it doesn't go further north.

    Does it help if you put the cursor in the 30 and then click the up spinbox?

    I just typed +90 into the box hit the return key and the display was centered
    on the north pole

    Before commit this patch I'm check it on the original defect and I don't got
    this issue. Right now I can't reproduce issue, described in first post.

    I know this is a three-month-old thread, but I think he means he can't change
    Longitude from W 80 39'. I was able to change my Latitude to N 90, but I've
    been fighting with the Longitude.
