Bug Description

Original topic:

We would like to looked at a fixed point (a set Az/El) and watch for what stars might come by? I went to "search window" (F3) and entered a point RA/DEC. But Stellarium seems to follow the sky. I want to simulate what it would look like if the scope is NOT moving.

Question 2: for the point is there anyway to enter AZ/EL (or HA/Dec) instead of RA/DEC ?


Further 'playing' with Stellarium and entering a fixed point seems to work, but I'd still like to enter the point in AZ/EL or HA/DEC instead of RA/DEC.
