Hi All

As the subject header said, looking for a moon picture that as been tweaked to fit on a sphere, using the one used in U58 demos for world picture, would likwe one for the moon.

Another Quick question How do you force a large picture into a small screen res, eg screen res is 640 x 480 x 16.

clear as mud I know but writing not my strong point.

Any decent graphics program such as Paint Shop Pro allows you to resample or resize and change the color depth.

Ok, what size sphere would I use for the size of earth and the moon to keep it to scale and how far apart should hey be.
