    Question Stellarium Color and FOV



    Is there a way to change the stellarium settings so that there are no color on the galaxies like you would see with a scope and no filters added? Also is there a way to type in an exact FOV in the program?

    I can't help you with the colour. The ocular plug-in lets you specify the AFOV of each eyepiece.

    I listed 3 of my EP in stellarium. How do I quickly change the ep in ocular mode mode?

    I know what you are trying to do-- but no software exists that will give you the exact view you will see in the eyepiece. Even the web sites that say -- here is the view in a 6 inch scope, and 8 inch scope, a 10 inch scope etc etc; are not exactly correct.

    The simple solution is to just find the object in a lower power wide field eyepiece, center it and then decide if you want to increase the magnification by changing eyepieces or adding a barlow.

    Unfortunately there is no easy way to change nebulae colors in Stellarium as they are all represented by long-exposure photos. If you are handy with Photoshop, GIMP or some other image processing software you can modify the stock nebula images to get closer to a visual representation. I did all of mine in about 20 minutes in PS, here is M42 as an example - modified on left, standard on right:


    The scale of the two is a bit off, the one on the left is zoomed in a bit further but it gives you an idea of what can be done by a resourceful (and bored) person

    I enjoy the color in Stellarium, but understand what you want to do. Just not sure why, but I haven't found any way to remove the color.

    I too enjoy the colors, but I want to take it out so I can simulate what I see when actually looking through a scope that doesn't have color filters. Thanks for trying to help me out!

    Actually, I have the same question about the oculars plugin with 0.11. There used to be keyboard shortcuts to quickly switch between scopes and eyepieces, but in this version it seems you have to use Alt-O to bring up the oculars menu and then use the mouse to select the EP. Are there still shortcuts, or is this the only way to switch between EPs?
