How to install landscapes After you have downloaded the .zip file for a landscape from this page, you need to install it in Stellarium.
If you are using an earlier version of Stellarium, you can follow this procedure to install a landscape package:
- Browse to your User Data Directory, which varies according to your operating system. (eg. in Windows Vista/7 enter %appdata%\stellarium in Explorer's location bar )
- Create a sub-directory called landscapes in your user directory (if it doesn't exist).
- Unzip the landscape .zip file in the landscapes directory (if it's done right, a sub-directory should be created for each landscape).
NOTE: Older version of Stellarium (prior to v0.9.0) used a slightly different mechanism for doing landscapes. You can find a list of the old landscapes here.

This panorama was photographed from the abandoned French lighthouse at the southernmost point of the Masoala peninsula in Madagascar. It provides a spectacular view over the Indian Ocean and the Masoala peninsula that is still mainly covered with rainforest. More information about this particular place can be found here
Mbabane is the capital of the little kingdom of Swaziland. Waterford/Kamhlaba is an international school on a mountain side which prides itself in cultural diversity. In SiSwati "kamhlaba" means "a world in miniature". The actual view is from the sports field where we usually set up the telescope.
