No more spacecrafts on a black background! This blend includes a procedural stars background for Cycles. Blender Internal includes one option in the world settings, but cycles engine doesn't.

The background is not perfect and in some points there are too much saturated galaxies. You can avoid them easily by rotating the clouds pattern coordenates in the background settings.

Map moon image is not packed in the file, as I'm not sure with its rights. If you want you can look for it in your web search engine.

This images has no compositing. You get what you see. There is a high res version with compositing here. And a brief explanation in my blog.

EDIT: @shadow12312gx has made an animation with this World settings:

    Muchas gracias por tus comentarios @oldtimer. He sacado una nueva versión con algún ligero retoque en la luz y en la configuración del renderizado. También he actualizado las imágenes. Saludos

    @oldtimer, thank you very much for your comments. I have updated this blend with some tweaks in the light and render settings. I have also updated the images. Regards

    This doesn't seem to work with Blender 2.71 and up? I'll go through the nodes when I have time later.

    Hi, I have tested the file in Blender 2.72 and the Rendered 3D View works, but the preview panel in the World button fails. I will investigate this.
