Since version 0.10.3, Stellarium's packages include a number of plug-ins:

All these plug-ins are "built-in" in the standard Stellarium distribution and DON'T need to be downloaded separately. See #Enabling plugins below on how to enable them.

Some other plug-ins exist:

  • LogBook - allows you to record observation notes, and track your observation sessions. It's still under construction.
  • VirGO - The ESO-sponsored archive browsing and visualization tool
  • SVMT (Survey Visualization and Monitoring Tool), another ESO-sponsored plug-in

Enabling plugins


To enable a plugin:

  1. Open the Configuration dialog (press F2 or use the left tool bar button)
  2. Select the Plugins tab
  3. Select the plugin you want to enable from the list
  4. Check the Load at startup option
  5. Restart Stellarium

If the plugin has configuration options, the configuration button will be enabled when the plugin is loaded and clicking it will open the plugin's configuration window.

Version history

The following table shows which plug-in versions are bundled with which versions of Stellarium. There were plug-ins for Stellarium 0.10.2 and prior, but they were a separate download.
