Cartes du Ciel: Below the Horizon??
Posted 16 April 2013 - 07:44 PM
The one thing that bugs me about CdC is that it does not display anything below the horizon. In the default mode, the only way I can figure to look at the sky below the horizon is to adjust the time so it above the horizon..
Is there some what to change CdC so that it shows the entire sky and not just what is above the horizon?

Under the "Chart" menu there is a "Below the horizon" selection. Click that and objects below the horizon appear.
Thanks so much. I knew it had to be there somewhere.

The below horizon feature has not worked correctly on any of the recent versions. The last one that was correct is V3.5b1966.
Works fine for me and I am running v3.8. Might want to check your video drivers...

Uncle Rod, does it work on v3.8 on an all-sky view (over 180° FOV)? This was disabled on v3.6 and I'm curious if they brought it back. It's the one reason I'm still on v3.4.
No, it won't work on all-sky, but I don't find it needed there. What I do find it good for is searching for objects. When you are in a normal sky view below 180 it will find the object and show it to you despite it being below the horizon. Works great.

It works below 180 but not there or above. This started with the first version after 3.5B1966. This is the only program out of many that has this kind of problem.
Well, the obvious answer is, if this feature is important to you, use some other software. Nothing says you can only have one on your drive.
What does Patrick say?
