Marble: Extend the Stars Plugin's configuration dialog

completed by: Timothy Lanzi

mentors: Torsten Rahn, René Küttner, Dennis Nienhüser

In this task:

a configuration dialog for the stars plugin has been created.

Add more Configuration Options:

- Add checkboxes to turn the various objects on and off

- Add a horizontal Slider that allows to filter stars down to a certain level of magnitude (so that all stars which are more faint don't get rendered).

- Add some means to configure the color of the constellation lines.

Here is some ASCII art to get the idea:


[x] Constellation lines

[x] Constellation labels

[x] Deep Sky Objects


Magnitude limit:


1 2 3 4 5 6


Constellation lines: [   ]
