missing dso images from older version

Asked by Pat on 2016-06-30

I use the latest version for windows 7 (64b) and I am missing images of common DSOs I used to see in older versions when I zoom in to check my FOV for various telescope/camera combinations with the eye-piece plugin. The North America and Pelican nebula are examples.
Typically I open the search dialog, type for instance "America Nebula" and press enter. The program will "slew" to the right position, but when I activate the eye-piece view by clicking the rectangle in the upper right corner, the program will zoom in and show the supposed FOV, but not the nebula. Zooming in and out with the mouse wheel will not help. I did this in earlier versions and I'm pretty sure, North America and Pelican were there...
Thanks and kind regards,

Textures of North America and Pelican are never used in Stellarium because we doesn't have free photos for it. Maybe you are used non-standard package of textures before?

If you have those textures under free license we can include them of course

I agree wit this poster that an older version of Stellarium showed me the texture for North American . Maybe I am confused too, but I remember seeing it last year.
