Random Star Catalogue Generation
« on: July 12, 2009, 08:34:51 AM »

Well, I am writing on a fantasy/science fiction novel and I really need a possibility to generate a random section of stars especially for having a specific set of star constellationson the nightsky of my fictional planet.
It should have dimensions of 50,000 up to 100,000 stars, like the star catalogue in Celestia. In general it would be the best if the generated star catalogue could be readable by Celestia.

Do you know software to do so? Something like a "random star catalogue generator for celestia"? *g*
It also would be fine if the software would also respect that there are more stars in the galactical disk then in the outer regions.
Can you help me? ???
