I LOVE this application. Stellarium is one of my favorite applications ever - one of the kind that makes you happy just because somebody had the idea and made it. Not only that, but made it free, and open too! Lots of respect for the developer, for sure. Appropriately still not at version 1.0 yet; that's going to be an exciting milestone!

if you use any language other than english, stick with stellarium 0.8.2. otherwise the whole ui will be screwed up!

You have to trash the old Stellarium config.ini file because it won't work if it launches straight into full screen. New icon sux, can someone send me the old .icns image? [email protected]

It didn't work for me. It crashed my MBP Core Duo 2 on launch.

Very cool indeed!

now are 0.8.1 for Mac OS X
(the official site haven't update the link)

Very cool app. Kids love it.

Celestia and Stellarium complement each other well.
