I think this is the same bug i reported some time ago (#1093698). Alexander Wolf said it's related to nvidia GPU.

Tuomas, this is possible but I can't give guarantee :)

Hello again and thanks for the replies. I cannot find a log.txt file related to Stellarium. But there is one file in the windows/system32 folder if I remember correctly (I'm away from my pc at the moment). Is this the file you were reffering to, Alexander? btw sorry for the previous two messages. Hit enter too early...

I'm having the same problem, after upgrading to the latest version.
One different behaviour is that mercury is shown correctly if the sun is in the field of view, and the same as the other planets otherwise. Zooming in, the planet is shown normally. The natural sattelites (except the moon) have the same problem.

Hi everyone, I have the same problem here using vista 32bit with ATI grafics... for example watching Jupiter I see it as a trapezoid till the FOV is 3.89°.... about the satellites it seems it depends because earlier this afternoon when the planet became visible as it is and they were just a little point, they then became trapezoids; in this moment they don't. I've attached a picture of venus and mars as trapezoid but mercury was fine.

Hi everyone.
Problem still appears. Planets still appear as colorful trapezoids when planet labels are off. The trapezoid disappears once I mark a star with my mouse or when planet labels are on.
log file attached.
Keep up the good work.

Hi there,
the problem is still in there ALSO when I click on Saturn or Jupiter, for instance. Actually for like a millisecond, while i was moving "the sky" to search for Jupiter, the Moon appeard as a coloured trapezoid but was just a millisecond then was the old dear moon.
Log attached
Happy to help trying out the new versions but I'm not H24 on my laptop unfortunately.

OK, this bug related to shadows shaders - wrong calculation of limits?
