From celestia.cfg:

Code: Select all

#------------------------------------------------------------------------
# The following parameter is used in Lua (.celx) scripting.
#
#   ScriptScreenshotDirectory defines the directory where screenshots
#   are to be stored. The default value is "", i.e. Celestia's
#   installation directory.
#------------------------------------------------------------------------
  ScriptScreenshotDirectory ""


You should set ScriptScreenshotDirectory to a writeable directory.

I had tried setting directory using for eg: D:\celestia-extras, but actually D:/celestia-extras has to be used. Thanks everyone I could save screenshots.
