Something to make this more accurate:
The Eskimo Nebula's radius is 0.34 ly (Source: Wikipedia)

Good, but the model is displayed twice! (I think it's because Astroboy wanted to allow the user to choice the nebulae by its 2 names: NBC2392 and Eskimo.)
So delete in file .dsc the 2nd display and replace first line:
Nebula "NGC 2392" {
Nebula "NGC 2392:Eskimo Nebula" {

Anyway, good job! home page
