   Yes, it seems to be a case of "not enough photons". Just using spacing
.1 gives a "better result":

Number of photons shot:            1265
Surface photons stored:             630
Media photons stored:             20351


   With spacing 1 it was only getting a few photons:

Number of photons shot:              21
Surface photons stored:              10
Media photons stored:                28
