KStars already can display supernovae. However, when it does, it shows all supernovae at maximum brightness. It would be very useful if KStars were able to show supernovae at their current brightness. That way, it is much easier to search for them and to know which ones may be observable or imageable. For those that like the current display of supernovae perhaps that should remain possible via a checkbox or so.

And it would be great if KStars could also display novae. Recently there was a nova in Perseus and it would have been great to use KStars to slew to it and image it over several nights. OK in this case the nova progenitor was already known as a variable star (V392 Per) so it was easy but this clearly was an exception.

Do you think this could be possible? If yes, should I open a feature request on another forum or it github? Or is this enough?


Thanks, Wouter

You could send this to KStars mailing list (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and also file it as a wishlist bug at bugs.kde.org and maybe someone who is interested can pick it up.
