Is there a way to increase the magnitude limit in KStars, out to 16, 17, or 18?
I've tried Configure KStars -> Catalog and increasing the star density, which does increase the number of stars but at least not those magnitudes in this specific star field I am looking at. Looks like maybe it caps at 12.0.
Under Configure KStars -> Advanced -> Look and Feel you can change Configure Hidden Objects to "Stars fainter then 10 mag", but no more. But that doesn't seem to do anything anyway, since I'm looking at stars of greater than mag 10.
Is this supported? Do I have to add a star catalog or something?
