I made the background stars in the picture using Gimp, first I copied bg layes. then I opened noise/hurl, set percent to 1, and iterations to 1, and then hurled random pixels over the screen. Then I copied that layer and enlarged it by 200%, I repeated this step to give me 4 sizes and densities of stars. now here comes the tricky bit. on each layer I picked the free hand selection tool and pretty much furiously scribbled all over the screen and then expanded the mask by about 5 pixels, and then pressed delete. this results in a more realistic distribution of stars. I created a fifth layer and using pencil aded four large stars and and Jupiter and Saturn. I used the neon filter on this layer to make Jupiter and Mars appear to glow. I could send you the original unflattened Gimp file to play around with if you like.

Thanks, this was an informative reading! I must find some free time and try to play with your steps sometime.
