"Xcellent!!! (I'm an amateur)"

May 26, 2013  |  By aaanouel

 |  Version: Stellarium 0.12.1

Pros

Beautiful, complete, easy to use, versatile and have a lot more options than I'd ever need and it's FOR FREE!!! just unbelievable.

Cons

My only one concern is probably my remorse for not being able to give them a very well deserved donation.

Summary

Great Planetarium in home software: Not for being for free is is not a serious and complete software and probably the very best!
Download it right now and donate if being able to... developers deserve it!!!

"Great to show kids."

March 17, 2012  |  By hoagk

 |  Version: Stellarium 0.11.2

Pros

Easy to use, graphically appealing, and it has more information than I know what to do with. I love showing my kids in the classroom the stars and planets with this.

Cons

A little problem with the location keeps sliding back to Paris instead of Chicago, but that's too small to quibble with considering the price.

Summary

Very worth while. I never would have suspected free software to be this excellent!

"An impressive astronomical guide"

August 01, 2011  |  By ian.miller_nz

 |  Version: Stellarium 0.11.0

Pros

Seems to contain just about everything an amateur observer would wish for.

Cons

It is not quite as intuitive as some other reviewers have suggested, but it is worth making the effort to get used to it.

Summary

This accesses an extraordinary amount of information, and as such it is a bit more complicated to get the best out of it. The "Help" section includes a very useful "user guide" (98 pp I think) and I strongly recommend you download this. Once you have come to grips with this, you have a remarkably powerful application for, well, free. Magnificent value!

"Very good when in one location"

December 12, 2010  |  By wwilson7

 |  Version: Stellarium 0.10.6

Pros

Very good when in one location over centuries or even millennia; planets and moons very accurate; images of star clusters and nebulae very good.

Cons

Biggest problem is changing locations--program sticks to time at original location; when changing to location very distant from "home", sky is shown at system time, and changing time shows sky as it would be at home location.

Summary

Very good planetarium simulator within above limits.
