Marble: Add constellations of the summer triangle to the stars plugin

completed by: Timothy Lanzi

mentors: Torsten Rahn, René Küttner, Dennis Nienhüser

In this task

the stars plugin has been extended to display constellation lines. So far it only contains the big dipper, Cassiopeia and Ursa Minor.

This task is about adding

  • Cygnus ("the swan", german: "Schwan")
  • Lyra (german: "Leier")
  • Aquila ("the eagle", german: "Adler")

Important: please use the constellation lines from this Url as a reference.

This task might require to change the stars plugin source code in a way that it allows to end a linestring and start a new linestring inside a given constellation (e.g. for Cygnus and Aquila)
