스텔라리움은 컴퓨터용 오픈소스 플라네타리움이며, 리눅스/유닉스, 윈도우즈, 맥 OSX에서 운용이 가능합니다. 이 프로그램은 오픈GL을 사용하여 하늘을 실시간으로 렌더링하는데, 이는 하늘이 여러분의 육안, 쌍안경, 소형 천체망원경으로 보는 그대로임을 의미합니다. 스텔라리움은 매우 사용이 간편한데, 이는 이 프로그램의 주요 장점이기도 합니다. 이 프로그램은 초심자들도 쉽게 사용할 수 있습니다.
스텔라리움 프로젝트는 2001년 여름 Fabien Chéreau에 의해 시작되었으며, Sourceforge를 많이 사용합니다. 이곳으로 접속합니다.

Where can I provide feedback?
Your ideas and comments are invaluable to Stellarium. Have a look at the homepage to see where you can get personal support, ask for new features, report bugs and even submit your own patches.
What are Stellarium's system requirements?
A graphics card capable of rendering OpenGL. A Riva TNT2, released in 1999 or 2000, should do. Stellarium is also fairly processor intensive, so you will get higher framerates with faster processors. Any reasonably recent computer should be able to run Stellarium. Furthermore your computer should be running a Linux, Windows or MacOSX operating system.
To give you an idea of what's possible, we've had success with these older computers:
- Pentium III 800Mhz, 128MB RAM, Intel on board graphics (under Windows XP).
- AMD K6 400 Mhz, 256MB RAM, Nvidia Gforce2 AGP, DirectX 9.0 (Windows XP)
How do I install Stellarium?
For Windows users, run the downloaded file "setup.exe" and follow the instructions. For Linux users, the easiest is to find a pre-compiled package for your distribution. But it is also possible to compile the program yourself: detailed compilation instructions for Linux, Posix, Cygwin and MacOSX are available in the "INSTALL" file. Mac OSX users should download the dmg file, double click on it to open, the application is contained inside, drag the application to your Applications folder.
How do I uninstall Stellarium?
For Windows users, uninstall Stellarium using the "Add or Remove Programs" applet in the Windows control panel. For Linux users, use your packet manager if you installed a pre-compiled version. If you compiled yourself you can uninstall by typing "make uninstall" in the compilation directory.
How do I start using Stellarium?
You are running Stellarium on one of those fancy widescreen laptops, and there is no option specifying your screen resolution in the menu. In that case, just open the config.ini file with a text editor, and find the screen_w and screen_h values. Set the numbers to the desired dimensions, save the file and restart Stellarium: enjoy the view!
Is there a user's guide to Stellarium?
Thanks to Matthew Gates and various other contributors, there is. Find out everything you want to know about Stellarium, and the astronomic principles you see demonstrated in the program. Essential reading. Download the user's guide to Stellarium (pdf).
How do I use other constellation art in Stellarium?
Want to use other drawings than the ones included in Stellarium, like your own drawings, or antique drawings from the Uranographia?
You will need to change the constellation textures, and possibly adjust their coordinates in the constellationsart.fab file. If they're not burdened by restrictive copyrights, you can share the set you made with the rest of the community.
Is it possible to show more stars?
Stellarium uses the Hipparcos catalog, which contains over 120000 stars. It is currently not possible to use other star catalogs.
Is Stellarium available in my language?
Starting from version 0.8.0, Stellarium can be tailored to show your language. Settings are in the preferences window, or in the config.ini file. It is possible that the translation isn't complete yet, so we would be grateful if the talented translators among the Stellarium users would contribute to the translations. Info about the process is on the translation page.
I can't install Stellarium.
Read the installation instructions contained in the "INSTALL" file, which comes with Stellarium.
Stellarium installs, but does not run.
We can offer some accounts of what people experienced in the past. Firstly, it is possible your computer refuses to run Stellarium because the resolution in the config.ini file is wrong. Set it to your native resolution and see if that helps. Secondly, maybe a file necessary for Stellarium was corrupted or badly formatted in some way. Try reinstalling, don't forget to backup any Stellarium files you might have customized. Thirdly, Stellarium reports basic actions in a text output file, named stdout.txt, which is in the program directory. If you are running Stellarium on a computer where you don't have the right user privileges to do that, Stellarium refuses to run. Lastly, stdout.txt and also stderr.txt might offer some insight into what goes on when Stellarium exhibits problems.
I experience very slow rendering, very low framerates on my computer.
This happens when hardware rendering is disabled. If you have a 3D video card, make sure that your OpenGL drivers are installed and up to date.
Stellarium crashes after it has been running for a while.
Stellarium is pretty processor intensive. This means things can get quite warm inside your computer. If you experience freezes or computer crashes, you might have a heat problem. If this is the case, other processor intensive tasks such as mp3 encoding should lead to the same problem. In the newest versions, a frame rate limiter is present. That should solve your problem.
Some moons are in another position than they should be.
Currently we have no accurate ephemeris for Charon and no ephemeris for Neptunian satellites at all. The other satellite ephemeris should be correct. When you compare with what you see in your telescope you should enable light travel time compensation in config.ini.
The non-Latin font for my language doesn't show up
Chances are your language is included, but the program doesn't include a font for your language, as we're concerned about download size. Find a font for your language, and tell the program which font to use in the config.ini file. See Display complex characters in Stellarium for more details.
Stellarium runs fullscreen at a refresh rate of 60Hz
This is a problem in Windows XP. Read about it here: Solving the refresh rate problem.
My local language isn't complete, or some terms are incorrect
Translations in Stellarium are a community effort, so it is possible that a local translator started the project, but never finished it, or didn't find help with some specific words. You can help us! Translation tips are on this page: Translation using gettext
