This is how I create a background for an animations of a ship or stationary picture. Make a large Geosphere around everything and then some (zoom out a lot on either the Top, Bottom, Front, Back, Left, Right Screen whatever you have. Now umder the matirals maps, make the Diffuse Color a Bitmap and goto where you installed 3ds Max and there should be a folder called Maps and under that something called Space and there, Stars10.jpg will be there. Add that matiral to your Geosphere. Then goto the modifcation tab topright second from the left. And add a normal mod to the Geosphere and click Flip Normals There are some images to help. This is for 3ds Max 4.0. I think this is how you do it.
