You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
Maybe it temporary troubles on SIMBAD server. You can try switch to using other mirror of SIMBAD in Find dialog settings.
Changed from "University of Starsbourg (France)"
"Harvard University (USA)"
Works fine now.
Thanks for the Fix, and a Special Thanks for Stellarium. It a fantastic job you are all doing.
I run a small Astronomy Group in Thanet UK and all our members are 'over the moon' with Stellarium :-)
Would you please tell me how you changed it.. I'm facing the same problem.. :(
Thanks in advance...
Strasbourg is still unhappy! I had the same problem, but eventually found the Harvard solution myself - wish I'd seen this thread earlier;-)
