SAO (abt. 250000 stars)
Date and time
N (dd mm ss)
W (hh mm ss)
(above settings effective only if both are given)
Time and date default to the server's local time. Timezone defaults to server's country as does the use of daylight saving time. Latitude and longitude default to Turku, Finland (25E, 60°N).
Off - Pointer lines on solar objects in allsky-map
Off - Should the allsky map may be colored blue in daytime
default by display type - Should star names be displayed in
horizontal bright star
default by display type - Display the coordinates of the planets in upper right corner
The horizontal view shows a view to south. This is fixed, because in Finland planetary objects are usually in the southern direction.
The SAO map is very slow to use
The bright star map ends at about -30° because those stars are never visible in Finland. Sorry.
I doubt these will ever be implemented.
