These panels aren't all Space Engine and noise. There's an oooold filter named Universe, I purchased it many years ago and it's fantastic for starfields and interstellar gas/nebulae. You can even add planets with custom textures. One of the many, many reasons why I keep using a free outdated version of Photoshop.

That thing in panel 1 is a ley gate.

I think I may have looked at buying Space Engine years ago, but I couldn't justify it to myself since I had no practical reason for it. That first panel especially is beautiful.

That was almost completely made using the various filters in the Universe collection for Photoshop. I purchased them many years ago because I needed a quick way to render a lot of space scenes - painting a nebula by hand is an extremely time-consuming feat. I used Space Engine to render the planets in the other panels.

Anyway, I bought Space Engine mainly because I enjoy creating solar systems. Astronomy is one of my hobbies. The risk is getting lost in details - I don't think I'll ever need to know the altitude of geosynchronous orbit on Caleta, but I love being able to know it just in case :°D

You sound like the kind of person I'd like to sit down and chat with about hobbies and books. :)

I can't claim that Astronomy is a hobby, but I've always been fascinated by space and the wonderous discoveries we've made just in my lifetime. Maybe I'll have to look up Space Engine again?
