Detailed Description

The Pulsars plugin plots the position of various pulsars, with object information about each one. Pulsar data is derived from Catalog of Pulsars (Taylor+ 1995) for 0.1.x series and derived from The ATNF Pulsar Catalogue (Manchester, R. N., Hobbs, G. B., Teoh, A. & Hobbs, M., Astron. J., 129, 1993-2006 (2005) (astro-ph/0412641)) for series 0.2.x.

Pulsars Catalog

The pulsars catalog is stored on the disk in JSON format, in a file named "pulsars.json". A default copy is embedded in the plug-in at compile time. A working copy is kept in the user data directory.


The plug-ins' configuration data is stored in Stellarium's main configuration file (section [Pulsars]).
