Since version 0.15 the official Stellarium User Guide is again developed for publishing in PDF format alongside with the program. It is packed with the Windows installer, and available as separate download for other operating systems.

All previous versions are outdated, but exist for historical completeness.

Official, but outdated

The official version of the Stellarium User Guide, which was written by our document author Matthew Gates with assistance from many people, was originally published as a PDF file. It was written using the program Lyx, but keeping it up-to-date was hard, so it was turned into a series of pages on this wiki:

The old versions in PDF are still available for download, but they are becoming increasingly outdated although an updated guide has been privately assembled to bring the guide up to 0.12.4 by one of the original assistant authors, see guides by other authors below:
