Description:

I know it's not "Gnome", but I thought I would post anyways. I could always brand it, I guess.

Mars was rendered using OpenGL, I got the texture map from here:

I got the star map from NASA.

Could you provide a URL as to where exactly in NASA did you get the star map. Also, did you get the actual star coordinates, or just a spherical/cylindrical texture map?

You should take a look at celestia, there are some pretty amazing extra texture packs which really bring a lot of detail, it even has some fancy atmosphere rendering stuff.

I didn't actually render the stars, I just used Gimp to combine my rendered image with the star background. I used their Hipparcos image. Sorta cheating, I guess. Some day I'll post something that is 100% rendered, hopefully.

Thanks so much for the tip! I will definitely check that out. And thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate it.
