  • Angle Measure - a tool for measuring the angular distance between two points
  • Compass Marks - add marks for compass bearings along the horizon
  • Oculars - simulate the view through various telescope eyepeices
  • Telescope Control - allows Stellarium to control a computerized telescope
  • Text User Interface - re-implements the old TUI (useful for planetarium users)
  • Satellites - calculates and renders Satellites in Earth orbit from NORAD/TLE data (hello ISS!)

Some other plug-ins exist:

  • LogBook - allows you to record observation notes, and track your observation sessions
  • VirGO - The ESO-sponsored archive browsing and visualization tool

  2. Select the Plugins tab
  3. Select the plugin you want to enable from the list
  4. Check the Load at startup option
