I'd like to have stars in the sky of my night-time and orbital renders, and I have an image I could use for it, but the background object only seems to accept a color.  I seem to recall somewhere that it was possible to use an image for the background, but can't find it now.  Any advice?

This link should give you the info you need and there is a step by step guide in the Learning Center.

The world is round... so you have to use spherical projection.

MeltingIce - THANKS!!!  This was exactly what I needed to understand.     ;D
So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?

Oh, Thanks from me too, I am proficient with Photoshop and love Glitterato, but working with the nodes is very confusing for me at the moment.
Love the tut!  I sure will be coming back to it when I learn more.
All your tutorials are wonderful!
