Has anyone to date used the catalogue to generate a fairly realistic spherical
sky shell or a flat image useful for uv-mapping a sphere?

I'd like to be able to incorporate this into the solar system scene I've worked

to be able to look up from a given position on earth at a certain angle at a
given date and time and see a reasonably accurate view.
