NGC objects / other catalogs / printing

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    Is there any likelihood of NGC objects or other star catalogs appearing in Stellarium at some point?

    If Stellarium is supposed to show what is visible to the naked eye/binocular user some of these need to be included . For example the double cluster in Perseus (NGCs 884 and 869) are a great/easy binocular object but don't appear in the program.

    This is probably a tall order too but is printing charts ever likely to be part of the Stellarium roadmap?

      NGC and IC Nebula are almost ready to be implemented in the current CVS (without images).

      Charting is something we are looking at - this is being worked on but we are working towards a cleaner implementation - this perhaps will be as an add-on.

        I am really looking forward to having some NGC items in this program. Keep it up!

      Thanks Tony, I'm looking forward to that!
