HNSKY 4.0.4 HyperLeda and Simbad queries to map

Post by han.k » 28 Apr 2019, 21:51

To all HNSKY users,

HNSKY planetarium program version 4.0.4 has been released. With this version you can display any query from the online HyperLeda or Simbad databases directly in the map.

Usage:

- Hold the right mouse button down and pull a rectangle.
- Release the mouse button and select Online query, Hyperleda or Simbad. After a few seconds the objects within this rectangle will be displayed in the map.

Hyperleda is best integrated and gives deep sky dimensions and orientation within the rectangle. Simbad gives only the position, not the object size.

Note that the data is stored in supplement 2. Save this supplement 2 to make it permanent.

Only the result of NED queries goes still to the browser. I'm working on a NED interface.

Clear skies, Han
