Looks like a lot of opportunity to do your own thing creating the textures and stuff, and it looks like it handles compositing and other aspects nicely.
And yes, the price seems reasonable.
I think that people get very inspired looking at cool space art like we have here and want to do their own, but sometimes the learning curve can be a bit steep, so something like this would certainly accelerate the process a bit for people who want some instant gratification. And once a person gets some experience creating with a tool like this, they can tackle additional challenges as they build their skills with Photoshop, 3ds Max and other tools.
