WARNING: Stellarium CANNOT prevent your telescope from being pointed at the Sun.
  • Never point your telescope at the Sun without a proper solar filter installed. The powerful light amplified by the telescope WILL cause irreversible damage to your eyes and/or your equipment.
  • Even if you don't do it deliberately, a slew during daylight hours may cause your telescope to point at the sun on its way to the given destination, so it is strongly recommended to avoid using the telescope control feature before sunset without appropriate protection.

If you abuse this feature to point your telescope to the sun and ruin your telescope, your eyes, your children's eyes or whatever, then this is not our fault, but yours.
