Anyone familiar with the NINA sky atlas?  

 

I have no problem to search for the nebulae but I'm not able to search Mars, Jupiter, etc.  Any ideas?

 

Thanks.

The NINA atlas only includes DSO. No stars or planets.

Thanks both!  So what if I really want to slew to a planet or star, any solution out there?

Connect Stellarium --  https://nighttime-im...ns/planetarium/

 

Then use Framing Assistant - (See step 2)

Thanks, will give it a try!

 

Any idea how the coordinates from NINA can be sync to Stellarium?

There is a button on the Framing Assistant tab to the right of Coordinates that is that.

 

from https://nighttime-im...e/tabs/framing/

 

 

2. Planetarium Sync

    Pressing the Planetarium Sync button fetches the coordinates of a selected object from the configured external planetarium program. If no objects are selected in the planetarium the center of frame coordinates are selected as a fallback.

Thanks!  But since I will need to perform a 3 star alignment using my mount hand controller (iOptron CEM40) before each imaging session, how can I ensure the coordination system of the planetarium program (Stellarium) uses the more accurate mount's coordination system (I suppose it should be more accurate after the 3 star alignment) before I use the Planetarium Sync button?
