For some time now, I've been wondering how Stellarium has come up with the names on a lot of DSO's. M78 "Casper the Friendly Ghost Nebula", NGC 1788 "Cosmic Bat Nebula", NGC 2477 "Electric Guitar Cluster" and NGC 1245 "Patrick Starfish Cluster", I mean REALLY, Patrick Starfish, if their referring to the character on SpongeBob (my son watched this when he was little) one of the stupidest cartoon characters I've ever seen. These are just the few that I could remember off the top of my head. Why do we have a need to change things? Why can't we just keep to the titles that were originally given.
