To access the plug-in settings, right-click on the layer in the Layer Manager and select Properties.

Settings allow to select different rings textures when availables and to turn shadows on and off.

You can unlock the Sun so that it follows the camera latitude (or the inverse if 'Invert' is checked) and watch different shadow configurations. Once you have one you like, just lock the sun again.
