comets in Stellarium

Tested adding a comet to Stellarium. Successfully added Elenin.

I don't know now why Kiron and I were having trouble with his computer. Again, the Stellarium interface leaves a bit to be desired, but I was able to do it. Probably we were rushing...

I did however learn that one must search by the "official" designation, e.g. C/2010 X1, so that's a little gotcha!
