</question>
<answer>
<para>
The <guiicon>&kstars; Icon</guiicon> is a sextant, a handheld telescope which
was used by navigators on sailing ships back when the stars were important for

could get an accurate estimate of the ship's current <link

If you would like to use a location that is not on the list, enter the
relevant information (longitude, latitude, city name, province name, and
country name), then press <guibutton>Add to list</guibutton> button.
All fields must be filled, except the optional province field.
You can also modify the values for an existing city, by simply changing
the values in the window, and adding it to the list.

You will have to edit the
<filename>~/.kde/share/apps/kstars/mycities.dat</filename> file, and
remove the location's line from that file.
You can easily remove a custom location from &kstars; by selecting it in the
cities list and pressing the <guibutton>Remove City</guibutton> button.
Note that you can not remove a &kstars; default city.
