Uptade magnitude calculations for comets
Everybody knows, when a new comet is found in the sky, its magnitude behavior is only a guess.
So, a given comet can be brigther or darker than expected as it approach the sun.
But, we can not update the magnitude formula to a observed comet magnitude. And we have several sources of amateur astronomers, like cometbase and calsky, whith the real comet magnitude to date. The updated magnitude formula is ready available in these sites, so it would be easy to edit a formula. Or even a internet download just like orbital elements?
Could the stellarium comunity wait for a version including this possibilty?
Thank you very much
