A new « Planisphere » function enables a dynamic computer-aided use of the reference
planetarium software « Stellarium », for the analysis of a photo in which a celestial
body (star, planet, artificial satellite) or more may appear.
If the photo under analysis has available, in its Technical data, the field of view,
the date and local time of the shot, the camera’s coordinates (longitude, latitude,
altitude) and possibly its line of sight (azimuth, elevation), IPACO automatically
superimposes, in the relevant geometry, the Stellarium image over the photo, while
giving access to an interactive fading tool between the two.

getting the most of Stellarium for the analysis of the photo.
