Set the right location

Set your location first! The default location is Paris, France. You can click on your location on the map in the configuration window, or enter coordinates manually. Don't forget to save the changes. Do that by clicking "set as default". From now on, the sky will look exactly as it looks where you live when you run Stellarium. If you take Stellarium along on a trip with a laptop, you will need to adjust your location of course.

Look around

Use the mouse or arrow keys to look around.

Zooming in and zooming out

Use the page up and page down keys to zoom in and out. Zooming on nebulas or planets is very interesting...

Selecting objects

Use the left mouse button to select an object, the right button to deselect the object and middle mouse button or spacebar to center on the selected object.

Controlling time

J slows down or reverses speed, L increases time speed, and K makes time return to normal speed. You can also use the time control buttons in the lower right of the screen.

Opening the help menu

Press the H key for help.
