SDSS images!

I finally got the SDSS images support up in the Observation Planner. Now the planner does a search for the SDSS images and displays the DSS image if the requested RA/Dec is out of the SDSS footprint. Though the current implementaion is a sneaky little trick, no one could find/offer a better and shorter method for doing it. Plus it works!

But you might ask whats so special about these SDSS images, well take a look yourself 🙂




Yes Ladies and Gentlemen they are in colour! Now isn’t that cool?

Plus this completes the Previews section of my SoC proposal 😉 (Now thats cooler right? 😀 )

  1. Great work!

    Can you implement the saving of object photos from the session list tab? I’ll discuss this on the mailing list.

    You’re going at good speed, keep it up!

    Congratulations! Your SoC is shaping up nicely. Hopefully it should help kstars making strong inroads within the amateur community.

      🙂 Thanks Med, yeah that will be really nice. Hopefully when COMAST is implemented for logs, KStars will have a much larger user base.
