    So we will have to be patient on that. Thank you guys for all the 
    comments so far.
    In the meanwhile I found another nice feature of Stellarium: Using your 
    mouse scroll wheel you can zoom in on any part of the sky you want. It 
    will reveal the moons of Jupiter, Saturn etc and show you some nebula. 
    First move the object you want to see to the middle of the screen, then 
    start scrolling.
