T-minus 'til Morning

A rocket waits on the launch pad for a morning lift-off. What is its destination?

If you guessed Saturn, you would be spot on. The rocket is a NASA image of the Cassini launch vehicle. Behind that is the Moon, made by UIC and a moon image map. I added some nice inner and outer glows to the layer for effect. Behind the Moon are several Textured Stars with streaks made by UIC. Clouds are UIC Interstellar Gas modified with various photoshop filters to get the right look. The horizon colors are a photoshop gradient.

I'm not sure I like the rocket in there, but it adds more to the image. As you can tell, I'm not spending much more than 2 hours on each one. Comments welcome.
