Dear all,

Ok if I go ahead and create the iconset with the small tweaks proposed by Brian above?

The moon looks much more realistic now, thank you!  I also like the fact that the image isn't over-sharpened like the old one.  I also like the added contrast to the image as a whole - the colors look better.

I'm not sure about Orion, though.  To me, Meissa looks too large.  Rigel should be more blue.  Some of the other, dimmer stars look too large as well.  They're kind of distracting.  Maybe remove some of them?

Other than this, this is an amazing improvement!  Thank you!

Hey all,

it's been a while but I revisited the icon with your comments in mind.

Please let me know what you think, and sorry for not getting back to this earlier!

Thanks,
Johan

I like the earthshine, but I think the eclipse look comes from that combined with the stylized crescent shape (the curve of an actual crescent moon looks more parabolic than spherical).

Thanks for the reply Bogdan,

With the entire moon showing, I'm suggesting earthshine, where the moon is lit by light reflected off earth. I like the effect in real life, that's why. I hadn't made the eclipse connection, but you're right, it does look like it.

I'll try some things to counter the general flatness of the icon, but I don't really mind it. Stellarium is a window to the sky, and the icon should describe that.

Best,
Johan

Thanks for your effort!

The new icon looks good, though there is something that bothers me and
I can't quite describe. An attempt:

It looks somewhat flat. I don't know why. The Moon also looks flat,
but in this case I think I know why. Is the crescent supposed to be a
moon phase, or the moon during an eclipse? Because it looks like the
second case - the shadow looks like Earth's shadow being cast on the
Moon.

Bogdan Marinov
