UNDER CONSTRUCTION

The Telescope Control plug-in allows Stellarium to control a telescope on a computerized mount (a "Go To" telescope) and offers a graphical user interface for setting up the connection.

It has been included as a static plug-in in Stellarium since version 0.10.3.

This page covers version 0.1.9, the one distributed with Stellarium 0.10.3 and 0.10.4.

Field of view circles

A series of circles representing different fields of view can be added around the telescope marker. This is a relic from the times before the Oculars plug-in existed.

In the telescope configuration window, click on "User Interface Settings". Mark the "Show FOV circles" options, then enter a list of values separated with comas in the field below. The values are interpreted as degrees of arc.

This can be used in combination with the Stellarium Virtual Telescope to display a moving marker with the Telrad circles. In this case, the list of FOV values should be "0.5, 2, 4".
