Hey--that looks very cool! I saw that tutorial & thought it was a neat idea--and now I see it was a VERY neat idea!!! Good work!
I just finished this, my first full color piece of artwork in PS, though it was done thru a tutorial in Advanced Photoshop Mag, I was rather proud that it looks like I can actually draw... Anyway... sorry its not a map guys... but I had to share.. even though it pales in comparison to the actual tutorial one the artist did... I was just happy I made it through with something that actually resembled a working piece of art....
*edit: this is 35% the size of the original, just an FYI for those interested...

I've done loads of planets too. Here's one I did in PS from scatch. I now have the flaming pear stuff and generally just use that.
Yours looks fantastic.

Very nice Aidy and Darth... ya'lls make mine look pale and weak in comparison... Guess its back to the practicing board for me
This ought to be in the reference section I guess but... This :-
is the popular "Astro Image of the Day" which is a large selection of the best of NASA's images including lots of planets, nebula etc. All NASA pics (without peoples faces) are deemed free to use.
A few matted clips of these can make some 'stellar' space scenes.
Edit -- Actually, todays (Mar 18 200 is a bit of a doozy !
Thanks for the advice and the links, I'll definitely be checking those out
