    Hey Nick. How did you get the moon to look so large without pixelizing the moon in the render. I find, using Vue, that when I increase the size of the planet objects, the low-res images begin to breakdown in quality. Am I missing something?

    Yup, the included planet images are seriously low res, and in many cases weak too.

    For the moon, I used my Lightwave model (available from my downloads, link below), to render a higher res custom planet. Custom planet images have all sorts of uses, and it's handy to grab them from NASA. Nebulae also work well, and I had good results with a Death Star as a custom planet too!

    (When loading the planet there's a button for 'custom' and you can link it to any image which will be additive to sky but go behind clouds).
