Abstract

In the last few years, the open-source desktop planetarium program Stellarium has become ever more popular for research and dissemination of results in Cultural Astronomy.

In this time we have added significant capabilities for applications in cultural astronomy to the program. The latest addition allows its use in a multi-screen installation running both completely automated and manually controlled setups. During the development time, also the accuracy of astronomical simulation has been greatly improved.
