Updated version of Celestia's standard bstar texture

This is a revamped version of Celestia's standard bstar texture. The sunspots are removed, because early-type stars (classes O to A) lack strong magnetic fields and thus sunspots, and I also use this texture for neutron stars (thus the file's name) which definitely do not have sunspots due to being perfectly smooth.

FarGetaNik's Project Echoes has better, 4K textures for O, B, and A type stars.

OK, but this is just for those who want to keep the old, nostalgic Celestia 1.6.1. feel, like me (with a few scientific accuracy, of course).
