Scott,A beautiful photo indeed! (I saved it.)Here is a screenshot I took in a freeware program trying to approximate a similar view. For anyone interested in astronomy or our solar system, the program is called "Celestia". It is a fantastic open source, freeware project that is great for teaching purposes, or just playing Captain Kirk on your own starship.(Note: the file has been reduced in size for posting, and has suffered in quality.)

Really nice. I was reading up on this on the website a little. Sounds like the hires tectures are going to task my little 16meg Voodoo3. And since the Voodoo's are limited in texture size, the author stated that could be a problem also by making things blurry. It's really getting time for a new computer. :-)
