NAME
       stellarium - A real-time	realistic planetarium

SYNOPSIS
       stellarium [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION
       Stellarium is a free GPL	software which renders realistic skies in real
       time with OpenGL. It is available for Linux/Unix, Windows and MacOSX.
       With Stellarium,	you really see what you	can see	with your eyes,
       binoculars or a small telescope.

OPTIONS
       -v, --version
	   Print program name and version and exit.

       -h, --help
	   Print a brief synopsis of program options and exit.

       --safe-mode
	   Do not use OpenGL2 features (such as	shaders). Useful on systems
	   that	report support for OpenGL 2, but its implementation is buggy.
	   Used	as a work-around for the "broken fonts"	bug.

       -c, --config-file file
	   Use file for	the config filename instead of the default config.ini.

       -u, --user-dir dir
	   Use dir instead of the default user data directory
	   ($HOME/.stellarium/ on *nix operating systems).

       -f, --full-screen yes|no
	   With	argument yes or	no over-rides the full screen setting in the
	   config file.	 The setting is	saved in the config-file and as	such
	   will	be the default for subsequent invocations of Stellarium.

       --screenshot-dir	dir
	   Set the directory into which	screenshots will be saved to dir,
	   instead of the default (which is $HOME on *nix operating systems).

       --home-planet planet-name
	   Specify observer planet. planet-name	is an English name, and	should
	   refer to an object defined in the ssystem.ini file.

       --altitude alt
	   Specify the initial observer	altitude, where	alt is the altitude in
	   meters.

       --longitude lon
	   Specify the initial observer	longitude, where lon is	the longitude.
	   The format is illustrated by	this example: +4d16'12"	which refers
	   to 4	degrees, 16 minutes and	12 arc seconds East.  Westerly
	   longitudes should be	prefixed with "-".

       --latitude lat
	   Specify the initial observer	latitude, where	lat is the latitude.
	   The format is illustrated by	this example: +53d58'16.65" which
	   refers to 53	degrees, 58 minutes and	16.65 arc seconds North.
	   Southerly latitudes should be prefixed with "-".

       --list-landscapes
	   Print a list	of landscape names and exit.

       --landscape name
	   Start Stellarium using landscape name.  Refer to --list-landscapes
	   for possible	names.

       --sky-date date
	   Specify sky date in format yyyymmdd.

       --sky-time time
	   Specify sky time in format hh:mm:ss.

       --fov fov
	   Specify the field of	view (fov degrees).

       --projection-type p
	   Specify projection type, p.	Permitted values of p are: equalarea,
	   stereographic, fisheye, cylinder, mercator, perspective, and
	   orthographic.

RETURN VALUE
       0   Completed successfully.

       not 0
	   Some	sort of	error.

FILES
       Note: file locations on non-*nix	operating systems (include OSX)	may
       vary.  Please refer to the Stellarium User Guide	for more details, as
       well as information on how to customise the Stellarium data files.

       /usr/local/share/stellarium/
	   This	is the Installation Data Directory set at compile-time.

       $HOME/.stellarium/
	   This	is the User Data Directory, which may be over-ridden using
	   command line	option -u.  It contains	the user's settings, extra
	   landscapes, scripts,	and can	also be	used to	over-ride data files
	   which are provided with the default install.

       $HOME/.stellarium/config.ini
	   The default main configuration file is config.ini. Refer to -c
	   above to use	a different filename and to -u to use a	different User
	   Data	Directory.

       $HOME/
	   The default screenshot directory. Refer to --screenshot-dir to use
	   a different path.
