Hi George!
I was wondering if it was ok if I rendered scenes (some for use ingame with TX2, others simply as TX2 promotional art) with the photos you've got in 'the Astrotourist' as backgrounds?

Thanks for asking! I'm flattered. You have my permission to use any image that you find there as long as you keep the copyright somewhere (best is probably a comment in the XML files or somewhere burried in your site--it's OK if it's not obvious).

As I said, I'm very flattered that you would ask, but you might also check out the Hubble Heritage site for way better images:

Thanks!
(Both resources should be very helpful ^^ - it's good to have a source though where the copyright is pretty easy)
