It's a little thing, really.

I swapped the black-hole-edge.png and icon-blackhole.png files in the dat folder.

I should probably have resized them first.... [tongue]

Sized to match the icon-blackhole.png (256x256 pixels), I like it.

Note - when taking pictures of dangerous stellar phenomenon, careful station keeping is advised.

I actually edited the icon for my 1.7-style UI, and I've known about the black hole image. However, it never occurred to me to actually change the appearance of the black hole itself.

Your edit reveals that the actual black hole in game is the image stacked on itself six times, with a different color for each image. That could be taken into consideration in the design of future mods. For instance, I can see redesigning the black hole to look more like the wormhole from DS9, since it already has a vaguely domed shape. (The images get smaller as you move up the stack)

Of course, as I think I have mentioned, the icon is stacked on itself twice. So my 1.7-style black hole, which is just a ring, actually resulted in a large ring with a small ring in the middle. [biggrin] Again, that should probably be kept in mind when designing a UI.
