Just installed this and tested it for a several minutes.
It's working on OS X 10.7.2 64-bit Intel.

It's not exciting, but it does what it says.
Since my computer is often in my bedroom, I sometimes want a dark 'saver when I'm heading to bed.

I'd like to see options to increase the size, and the ability to pan with adjustable speed. Maybe occasional shooting stars?

Crashed the first time I opened it, as I was looking at the options - I hadn't changed anything yet. Subsequent changes haven't duplicated the event.
