Bug Description

Currently the info at upper left when you click on a star doesn't always give the Flamsteed designation. For example, Glenah (ε Cyg) HIP 102488. It should also show "53 Cyg". This is important because when looking at references like The Night Sky Observer's Guide or Sky Atlass 2000 the Flamsteed number is on all charts. In Stellarium you can search, say 64 Cyg, and it will center but not highlight the star and so provide no info. When you then click on 64 Cyg it doesn't list "64 Cyg" in description but instead shows ζ Cyg and HIP 104732. It would be really helpful if it also showed the Flamsteed number. Thank you

Thank you so much for adding the Flamsteed numbers in the next dev. I'm using 0.12.2dev7 now

BTW Stellarium is simply awesome. Without doubt one of the most excellent open source programs on Earth !! Thank you so much for developing Stellarium.
