Folks,

 

Stellarium reference for comet ison. Insert into ini file.

 

 

 

[iSON]
name = C/2012 s1 (ISON)
parent = Sun
radius = 80
oblateness = 0.0
halo = true
color = 1.0,1.0,1.0
tex_halo = star16x16.png
tex_map = nomap.png
coord_func = comet_orbit
orbit_TimeAtPericenter = 2456625.369621431330
orbit_PericenterDistance = .01250446176504045
orbit_Eccentricity = 1.000000000000218
orbit_ArgOfPericenter = 345.50712732
orbit_AscendingNode = 295.7451926842039
orbit_Inclination = 61.81287790235313
lighting = false
albedo = 1
orbit_visualization_period = 365.25

 

 

 

 

 

Also comet c/2011 L4 Panstarrs

 

[PANSTARRS]

name = C/2011 L4

parent = Sun

radius = 10

oblateness = 0.0

halo = true

color = 1.0,1.0,1.0

tex_halo = star16x16.png

tex_map = nomap.png

coord_func = comet_orbit

orbit_TimeAtPericenter = 2456329.3937

urbit_PericenterDistance = 0.337628

orbit_Eccentricity = 1.0

orbit_ArgOfPericenter = 331.2931

orbit_AscendingNode = 67.5247

orbit_Inclination = 59.95487

lighting = false

albedo = 1

orbit_visualization_period = 365.25

 

 

Cheers

Hi Nicky,


 


You neeed to cut & paste into the stellarium ssystem.ini files.


 


Hate word assume...I am assuming you are using windows.


 


1.Using windows explorer locate


 


c:\documents and settings\<your username>\application data\stellarium\data


 


2. open ssystem.ini with wordpad. Copy script file above and paste into the ssystem.ini file. Each object begins in square brackets, so insert beore a new object starts.


 


3. Save the edited file. Copy the new file to c:\program files\stellarium\data..


 


If you have difficulties drop me a pm with your e-mail addr  and then send me the ini file and I wll edit.


 


Cheers
