Operating system:Windows, Mac OS or Linux
Other:Internet access for updates

The coordinates (RA and DECL) from objects (stars, galaxies, ...) are from year 2000, if no other information given. This coordinates can till to year 2020 differ till to 0.3°. Stars with high proper motion maybe more information's into the notes.

The distances (and because of this also the absolute brightness) from objects with a distance of more of 5000 ly can only give a roughly of the true distance. Great differences between Planetensuche and other programs or values from the Internet (for example are possible. After the import of the Gaia-HIP catalog the distances are now more exactly.

The XML format
The XML files from Planetensuche are suitable to show into a browser. The most browsers can view an XML file. But if you export many objects into an XML file, it need a lot of time to open it and many RAM needed. If the xml file is too big, the browser can not view it.

I can't exclude that still contains bugs or translation mistakes. If you find a bug or other mistakes please send me an E-Mail with a description about the error (automatic with the bug report module).
