If the individual images are, say, 1000 pixels whide, the spherical 
render need to be 4000 pixels whide and 2000 pixels high.

Looking at the darker parts, I think that you may need to increase 
recursion_limit by 1 or 2.

Also, it could be good to increase the count value as well as the pool 
size (the second parameter of count).
