 I just got that a little while ago myself and just tested it out a little bit
so I'm not sure if you actually have to have an index of refraction in the sky
to do that, or simply a pattern.
 I remember you need to do several renders and combined them at least the way
parts of it are done, maybe that doesn't mean it has to be done for everything.
Hopefully someone else will know more   And reply here
