Your nebulaes are really AWSOME and very beautiful.
Thanks for sharing your File!

Thank you everyone, guys! Glad to see a good response.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TGC !!!

Stormlord, good result. Nice color combination and a beautiful thin blue layer. Although I would customize a little more small details. Also good distribution of small, medium and large stars. It is difficult for me to achieve this. And where did you get these stars? Is it the Terragen?

And here I have another new nebula. It is called Tolibro.

By the way, Stormlord, try to increase cloud depth. The nebula will become more complicated and interesting. The upper limit is about 1000 km. But the render time rises rapidly. It is desirable that all Cloud layers have one cloud depth, although here you can experiment.

Thank you Dennis for your tip  to increase cloud depth... I'll try that.
Last night I rendered another spectacular nebula, based upon your modified TGC File. It's another one in the same style, but quite a little bit diffenrent.
I the next future I will try to find out some other good colour combinations.

The stars in my picture has been created in 3D Studiomax, not in Terragen. It's a simple Omnilight with a Lensflare effect. So I rendered some different sizes and effects (star, glow, lens-flare, strikes) and created a master star chart for personal use. This Starchart is handmade and can be seen in the Photoshop Screenshot attached. I aslo used another handmade starchart with a tileable star map. I just fill a layer with them and apply them with negative multiplication over the whole picture/nebula rendering. Finally I also have a sharp and big astrophoto only with stars and galaxies. The second picture shows a composite from the rendered orion style nebula and the real astrophoto.

A very good resource to cut out stars or nebulas is ESO. Here you will find good pictures and realy excellent astro photos.

So let me ask you Dennis...How do you make your stars? Do you just paint them?

Thanks, Hannes.

I the next future I will try to find out some other good colour combinations.

Try using real Hubble shots, they often contain good combinations. 3-4 good colors can usually be found.

The stars in my picture has been created in 3D Studiomax.  It's a simple Omnilight with a Lensflare effect.

Oh, I know about this opportunity of 3DSMax. But when I tried it, I decided that it would be too long and hardly. I just did not to achieve the result that you got. But then I'll try again.

I aslo used another handmade starchart with a tileable star map.

I do this, too. But i put the layer with stars above via Add blending mode. How do you do Negative multiplication?

A very good resource to cut out stars or nebulas is ESO. Here you will find good pictures and realy excellent astro photos.

Thank you, but I've been here before. In turn, I will advise such a resource with amazing starfields:
https://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/3442
https://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/3572

How do you make your stars? Do you just paint them?

No, all my stars are taken from photo. Both separate and tiled star maps.
