Retrospectively, after answering to Hj. Malthaner in p.b.i. ("The 
Expanse" Fanart, WIP - Ship passing a ringgateintotheringspace) I 
thought that you could use any deep space photograph from the net (NASA 
has some stunning ones) and convert it to .hdr or .exr. Gimp or (even 
better) IC from Lilysoft can do that. However, you will also need to 
convert to a spherical projection. IC can do some 3d projections but not 
sure about those in this context.
