Thanks for that, and ulterior versions (1.1.1).

I currently have a strange interest on constellations, is there a way to
have them nicely drawn as the sample for Orion ?

I tried to have a look at the include files, and the sample scene, but
I'm afraid the data to connect the stars as per the constellation is
missing and hard coded for orion in the sample.
