Lets see if you understand this.
I know photoshop inside out... thats not the point.
The thing here is to reproduce the sky exactly as it would be from THAT point of view - the sky is not the same in my location and yours - we're
prolly at least 6 hours apart - the sky from tokyo is completely different from the sky in western europe. Stars, constellations, position of the
milky way, orientation, tilts etc.
What you should do, is grab the exact coords of some place and make the composition as if it was the exact sky view from that particular location -
not just grabbing a picture of saturn and place it over the NY skyline at noon and say "if it was dark, december 24th 2012 at noon, saturn would
appear like this" - well... saturn may not even be there!
So what I said to you is... find the coords, figure out all the variables, etc (use that skymap or that cool astro software software ppl use that
allows to see "whats visible" from anywhere, insert that places coords, check what appears, THEN... find a good sky photo of that very same place)
EDIT: good luck btw... and uh... I'm not funding your little "expedition"
