Get it? THOSE are the kinds of adjustments that are needed, but not to sacrifice quality.
yeah the light are need some work i agree on trying to blur them. or add more
I like the lights...
Try blurring them, maybe?

good but room for improvement
The planet as such is well done, maybe u could still use higher res. textures but as u said the lights are a total overkill^^ try not to make them as bright and pixely XD cool word
But u certainly are on the right way =)
