Bug Description

Periodically when zooming in and out of objects and then returning to the wide view I find that Stellarium has 'flipped' the coordinates on me - that is, the Celestial Sphere has been flipped such that East is now West. I've attached a screen shot showing the flipped horizons with the cardinal points in reverse position - West is to the left of South!

It's a joke? You are enabled the flipping into Oculars plugin for Celestron EdgeHD-11 and says "this is bug" now.

No joke. The rotate sensor function in the Oculars plugin / sensor shouldn't affect the sky view like this issue is showing. Why should the orientation of the camera/ocular change the physics of the earth??? In 0.12.4 (and I believe previous versions) the rotate command has no effect on the sky, and this should be the behavior.
