You can remove LDN catalog and revert back to 0.13.2.

Replace C:\Program Files\Stellarium\nebulae\default\LDNCat_tabbed.txt wth an empty file.

If I do that what happens if I want that info later? Suggestion for future, can these DSO's be put on a selection tab so you only see the ones you want, IE: Messier, NGC, IC, LDN, etc.
