Thanks for the graph, I take it we'll be playing catch up for many years to come.  This reminds me of when new particles started to be discovered and there was a huge rush to begin classifying them.  Would a script file enable me to make textures for them much more easily as well as 3D modeling of t...

I agree- to avoid confusion.  I like having things in chronological order.  Back to a question I asked earlier is there any way for me to convert the starry night exoplanet.txt update file to a usable format for SE so the program can be regularly updated?

Yes sorry about that.  I'll give an example.  Using the suggestions thread as an example, let's say (like earlier) I was wondering about a saturation slider but also wanting to ask if it's possible for exoplanets to be automatically updated.  Should I put them in the same post or different posts sin...

Thank you!  But what if I want to talk about different subjects (like different kinds of add ons.)  I've been using the edit button if I think of something that belongs in a post I've already made but what if I'm responding to multiple people or wanting to talk about a different thing in the same th...

Wow, that's a lot.  Starry Night Pro Plus shipped with 1,800 and I guess it's more with the updates but probably nowhere near 3,590.  Still, as I'm looking at the SNPP program folder, it updates exoplanets, comets, asteroids and satellites in .txt file format.  Is there any way for me to use these ....

What would you say the total number of "real" exoplanets in SE is?  More or less than 2,000?

Coldest Brown Dwarf (as cold as the north pole) is this in the program? http://www.space.com/25659-coldest-brown-dwarf-near-sun-discovery.html I think it is but the name is a bit different WISE 08551-07144 instead of WISE 0855-0714 There are some others- including these room temperature ones which I...

Thanks Jack!  I am looking at Proxima Centauri right now and I remember an exoplanet was discovered orbiting it last year that made some news, is there any way to add it to the program? The 8 they have listed are of the procedural type it seems.

I would love to help in this regard (and would do it for free! I love this project!)- if only I knew how to do it.

Hey I wonder if anyone has an add on for Tabby's Star (or if someone will add it in the future into the program itself.)  I downloaded the add on for Boom Star, because I thought it was Tabby's Star but I see they are two different stars.

More or less. Be aware that SE doesn't have yet all features of a typical planetarium software despite the name, nor algorithms for precise orbits. SE 0980 even has some bugs in this area, corrected for the next update. Thanks, I'm really excited because it seems the first all-in-one astronomy soft...

SE I think Stellarium also updates exoplanets, but they only update the markers.  The update feature is completely automatic for comets, asteroids, exoplanets, etc as they update once a day.  Maybe we can have add ons that allow us to do this, one of my frustrations with Celestia was that they stopp...

Thanks, I wonder if it show the proper constellations by season and lat/long.
