Is there any way to save stellarium view of the sky to a file?
Pressing F2 and saving view allows saving maximum of 1 view/settings...

What you want to get as result?

An executable file which launching it opens Stellarium with desired location, time, sky view and sky settings. (Like Save As option in Starry Night software...)

You can write a script (or scripts) with settings, what you want to see in Stellarium and run them (via shortcuts within planetarium or via double-click on the script on Windows).

Hint: by default the script startup.ssc is run at startup of planetarium.

You can also store view and rename config.ini to have several variants, then start Stellarium using some particular config_Special.ini:

stellarium --config-file myConfig.ini

Or even use a separate user data directory (instead of AppData\Roaming\Stellarium):

stellarium --user-dir e:\Stellarium\specialUserData

Thanks gzotti, that solved my question.
