Stellarium now has a plug-in called "ArchaeoLines". Great for archeoastronomy. There's also a 3D landscapes plugin, which looks neat, if only I knew how to use it.

Yes, I've been curious about that one myself Ian. I can't get it to do anything. I don't know if there are special landscapes that have to be used? Can't find anything on the wiki either.

There is a new Stellarium user guide available. It's in pdf format and you have to sign in to download it, but looks good!

I just got this working! On the lower panel, there are 3 circular icons towards the middle of the screen. The centre one brings up the settings dialogue. You have to load a 'scene' first, and then CTRL+ cursor keys lets you move around. There are only two scenes to choose from, and frankly the graphics are pretty crude in both of them - the 'test' scene in particular is like an early 8-bit rendering of Doom! :lol:

But things can only get better I guess.

Slightly OT here, but I am loving the EH 'Skyscape' page that puts you right at the centre of Stonehenge with a semi-live 360 degree view. It has markers for summer and winter solstices and shows paths of the sun, moon and planets across the sky; you can also select different times of day/night.
It's a bit like a live version of Stellarium actually.

Check it out HERE.
