Since version 0.10.3, Stellarium's packages include a number of plug-ins:

  • [0.10.3+] Angle Measure - a tool for measuring the angular distance between two points.
  • [0.10.3+] Compass Marks - add marks for compass bearings along the horizon.
  • [0.10.3+] Oculars - simulate the view through various telescope eyepeices.
  • [0.10.3+] Telescope Control - allows Stellarium to control a computerized telescope.
  • [0.10.3+] Text User Interface - re-implements the old TUI (useful for planetarium users).
  • [0.10.3+] Satellites - calculates and renders Satellites in Earth orbit from NORAD/TLE data (hello ISS!).
  • [0.10.6+] Solar System Editor
  • [0.10.6+] Time Zone
  • [0.11.0+] Historical Supernovae - provides visualization of some historical supernovae.
  • [0.11.2+] Quasars - provides visualization of some quasars.
  • [0.11.2+] Pulsars - plots the position of various pulsars, with object information about each one.
  • [0.11.4+] Exoplanets - plots the position of stars with exoplanets.
  • [0.11.4+] Observability analysis
  • [0.12.3+] Bright Novae - provides visualization of some bright novae.
  • [0.13.0+] Equation of Time - provides solution for Equation of Time.
  • [0.13.0+] Field of View - provides shortcuts for quick changes field of view.
  • [0.13.0+] Navigational Stars - marks 58 navigational stars on the sky.
  • [0.13.0+] Meteor Showers - provides visualization of meteor showers.
  • [0.13.0+] Pointer Coordinates - shows the coordinates of the mouse pointer.

All these plug-ins are "built-in" in the standard Stellarium distribution and DON'T need to be downloaded separately. See #Enabling plugins below on how to enable them.

Some other plug-ins exist:

  • LogBook - allows you to record observation notes, and track your observation sessions. It's still under construction.
  • VirGO - The ESO-sponsored archive browsing and visualization tool
  • SVMT (Survey Visualization and Monitoring Tool), another ESO-sponsored plug-in
  • [0.12.x] Renderer statistics

[edit] Enabling plugins

sat_howto_01.jpg

To enable a plugin:

  1. Open the Configuration dialog (press F2 or use the left tool bar button)
  2. Select the Plugins tab
  3. Select the plugin you want to enable from the list
  4. Check the Load at startup option
  5. Restart Stellarium

If the plugin has configuration options, the configuration button will be enabled when the plugin is loaded and clicking it will open the plugin's configuration window.


[edit] Version history

The following table shows which plug-in versions are bundled with which versions of Stellarium. There were plug-ins for Stellarium 0.10.2 and prior, but they were a separate download.
