V'ger, I believe that the 2D program you used for this piece is just fine-- you don't need to purchase anything more in 2D software.

This piece is fantastic, great compostion, mood etc-extremely realistic-beautifully done.  Why don't you post this in our main gallery?    Jan

Yes, cs, the topic in this thread is what is your desktop. This is what I have right now.  I did not make this, this is real. Let me go look for what it is and post it. BRB

Spectacular explosions keep occurring in the binary star system named RS Ophiuchi. Every 20 years or so, the red giant star dumps enough hydrogen gas onto its companion white dwarf star to set off a brilliant thermonuclear explosion on the white dwarf's surface. At about 2,000 light years distant, the resulting nova explosions cause the RS Oph system to brighten up by a huge factor and become visible to the unaided eye. The red giant star is depicted on the right of the above drawing, while the white dwarf is at the center of the bright accretion disk on the left. As the stars orbit each other, a stream of gas moves from the giant star to the white dwarf. Astronomers speculate that at some time in the next 100,000 years, enough matter will have accumulated on the white dwarf to push it over the Chandrasekhar Limit, causing a much more powerful and final explosion known as a supernova.

I believe this is a David Hardy work, isn't it?
