Here is a link (http://www.hennigbuam.de/georg/gimp.html)to a set of astronomy plugins for GIMP, including a "realistic" (i.e. modeled) star field and galaxy generator. The star field generator has waaaaaaaay too many options to figure out :P

Might be useful for tis month's challenge...

Here is a sample - a star field and two galaxies:

Here is a link for something if you are interested in Astronomy too. Its a book that is free to download. You can download all the chapters but it's 'Sun and Moon' which is most relevant. I started the other day and it's pretty interesting. Take a look if you have time.
