KStars is a Desktop Planetarium for KDE. It provides an accurate graphical simulation of the night sky, from any location on Earth, at anydate and time. The display includes 126,000 stars, 13,000 deep-sky objects,all 8 planets, the Sun and Moon, and thousands of comets and asteroids. KStars comes with several tools to aid amateur astronomers of all levels, and a collection of informative articles on astronomical topics. KStars can even be used to control your telescope.

(Note on the version number: the last tarball release was numbered 3.3 to match the KDE version number. We have decided to use our internal version number from now on, which is currently 1.1, and corresponds to KDE-3.4.0).

KStars is an excellent program and has been for some time now. Definately one of the more professional qt apps out there.

 Great app!

I am using this app from time to time and since first usage two years ago I liked the app and its intuitive interface. Small glitches were always fixed quickly in one of the frequent releases and many nice features were added without spoiling the usability.

One feature I am still missing though is a fullscreen mode for the sky map. Combined with the night view mode this would be very useful helper on a notebook for watching the stars at night.

Thank you for the kind comments. :)

You will be happy to hear that a true fullscreen mode already exists in CVS. We are also adding an option where the kstars window can adjust its color scheme to a dark-vision theme to match the dark-vision theme of the sky map. (Without this, you'd still have a brightly-colored menubar, toolbar and statusbar, even in fullscreen mode)

 Catalogs?

 
 by NGC1942 on: Mar 27 2006
 
Score 50%

I run Kstars and SkyCharts. Both are excellent programs. My question: where are
the catalogs one can add to KStars? I refering to additional Catalogs in the setup Wizard. . . I would like to install additional catalogs if I knew where to find them. . . . Maybe you can point us into the right direction to obtain and install these. . .

Thanks for a great program.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
