I just recently upgraded to the new Stellarium. In the new version 0.10.2, many new features were added. The one I found most interesting was the light pollution simulation. Kind of shocking to see the differences immediately between perfect dark sky and nearly no stars. Makes me thankful for the (kind of) dark skies I do have.
Here, you can see the option in the Sky Views options screen.
This is the view simulated with no light pollution. This is what perfect dark skies would look like.
This is moderate light pollution. My skies are somewhere between this LP level and the dark sky above.
This shows heavy light pollution. I've been in places with more LP than this, and I couldn't see any stars!
In the near future, I'll be putting together a complete list of the new features of Stellarium. But tonight I'll be busy out at the 'scope!
