I do have radiosity enabled, although I haven't influenced it with the sky
sphere at all.  I have probably confused things with multiple versions of the
same scene in these discussions, so do you find even the latest chess board
closeup, (the 1920x1080 version) too dark for a moonlit scene?  The earlier
versions had the camera too low, so too much of the scene was in the shadow.
