FWIW, here's some things I noticed:
* I would rather not have the other planetary bodies, since they tend to
seem cluttered.
* It's still quite bright in my opinion and could make work more
difficult for some people.
* I think the stars aren't really needed, or if so the density could be
greatly reduced, again to make the picture less distracting.
* If there are going to be stars at all, perhaps they should not be
visible behind the solar body?

Having said all that, I really do like the design.  It reminds me of the
recent remake of Tarkovsky's "Solaris."
