RANDOMLY GENERATED SPACE WALLPAPER & SCREEN SAVER
"Simply beautiful star field for the iMac era"
Enjoy a flight through randomly generated starscapes as your wallpaper or system screen saver. Mathematical functions will be executed directly on your graphics card to generate endless combinations of stunning star constellations and space nebulae in real-time!
THE BEAUTY OF MATH
Every pixel will be calculated based on different random and noise functions. Never get bored to see the same picture or video over and over again. Click on the Dock icon to randomize the current scene at any given time.
HD SLIDESHOW MODE
In slideshow mode, high definition images will be rendered in highest quality based on a configurable time interval. This mode also uses the least amount of system resources. Looks great as live wallpaper!
Adjust the render quality, the number of stars, animation speed, nebula frequency and music volume.
SAVE AS SCREEN SAVER
Not just a great desktop background, save Starscape as REAL system screen saver file!
EASY ON YOUR CPU
All graphic commands will be directly executed on your graphics card, which leaves your CPU free for more important tasks to work on.
Stellartux completes your Starscape experience with a wonderful ambient soundtrack.
No need to search for great multi-screen themed backgrounds anymore.
Enjoy procedurally generated starscapes on all of your screens!

Very nice app - I like this a lot. The music is very ambient and soothing. Very customizable app.
Doesn't work with 10.8.4 - I get an error message saying that I need to upgrade the app.
More Reviews for Current Version
Works on High Sierra - This app works very well as an alternative to a screensaver, as a screensaver and as a visual and audio aid for meditation or ambient background while away from keyboard. At lot of apps are available that offer audio only. Many do offer a great deal of customizations, but no video. For $.99 this app far exceeds any expectations I would have for such an investment. Quite happy.
