    I have been busy since so many of you wanted the last one. There is another version on my website with no background which looks really good. There are a few stray pixels but it looks fine on the phone. Your theme background will show through the star.:)

    Looks very good, but i hate to pick at something that has possibly taken ages to create, but why are there little white speckles like a trail left when it spins?

    The one with the black background should be perfect- if not it is to do with your phone. The other....I took each of the 64 frames in the file and removed the background by hand, one by one. The problem with that is the compromise needed to choose which pixels to delete. I spent ages trying different rules until it was as good as it gets. Any pixels that were the same colour as my delete mask will go - even if they are part of the star, and inevitably, some of the background pixels escaped. The few you can see, well to be honest I couldn't be bothered by then to go back and edit it all over. :)

    PS there is no trail on my sony-ericsson with either star
