Detailed Description

The Bright Novae plugin displays the positions some bright novae in the Milky Way galaxy.

Bright Novae Catalog

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

Configuration

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

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

Nova::Nova ( const QVariantMap &  map)
Parameters
idThe official designation for a nova, e.g. "........"

Member Function Documentation

virtual double Nova::getAngularSize ( const StelCore core) const
virtual
Returns
radius in degree. This value is the apparent angular size of the object, and is independent of the current FOV.

Implements StelObject.

virtual QString Nova::getID ( void  ) const
inlinevirtual

The ID should be unique for all objects of the same type, but may freely conflict with IDs of other types, so getType() must also be tested.

With this it should be possible to at least identify the same object in a different instance of Stellarium running the same version, but it would even be better if the ID provides some degree of forward-compatibility. For some object types (e.g. planets) this may simply return getEnglishName(), but better candidates may be official designations or at least (stable) internal IDs.

An object may have multiple IDs (different catalog numbers, etc). StelObjectMgr::searchByID() should search through all ID variants, but this method only returns one of them.

Implements StelObject.
