I am upgrading it to the beta version because that's what currently supported by the upstream. You might have to download and install the extra catalogues using the new built-in tool.

Maybe the package needs an update... I have a new Manjaro system and it doesn't built it... Can you see if the packages has something wrong?

I don't have a telescope for now, I use for study for now, but I think this program will be really useful for others who have the right equipment. Too big you big? And there's a link that I can download the catalog and add it myself...if there's simple to do?

If you use and like this package, please vote for it.

GAIA catalog is too large to fit in the [archlinuxcn] repo. Maybe one day I would make a mag-15 one, but definitely not the mag-18 or mag-21 ones!

How large is your telescope? @PCZERO

I have to thank you for your work, everything works well. It lacks only the satellite GAIA's catalogue. It will be added in future?

You can install pre-compiled binary package of skychart and 1000+ other supplemental packages from third-party [archlinuxcn] repo. Check out for URL, mirrors, bug reports and more.
