Dead stars for KStars!

At last there are supernovae on the skymap of KStars! Small orange ‘+’ signs mark the spots of fury. The list of recent supernovae can be created/updated by using the Update Recent Supernovae Data option under Settings—>Updates.

Also Supernovae can be found by using the Find Dialog Box by using their serial number.

And right clicking on supernovae and getting some detailed information also works. 🙂 Anyway, let me finish this quick.. need to catch a train tomorrow morning and really need to catch up with some sleep.

So what next? Well, checking for new supernovae discoveries at startup and alerting the user of such discoveries needs to be done. Also the user needs to have the freedom of choosing whether to see those orange ‘+’ signs on the skymap. I somehow find them a little irritating. 😛

  1. I drop a comment whenever I like a article on a
    website or I have something to add to the discussion.
    Usually it’s caused by the passion communicated in the article I browsed. And after this post Dead stars for KStars! | Samikshan Bairagya. I was moved enough to leave a thought 🙂 I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind. Is it only me or do some of the responses come across as if they are written by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing at other online sites, I’d like
    to follow you. Could you make a list all of your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook
    page or linkedin profile?
