Some Variants of Kepler’s Stella Octangula

The Stella Octangula is also known as the compound of two tetrahedra, which works well because the tetrahedron is self-dual. All of these are also two-part compounds, with varying amounts of similarity to the Stella Octangula. The first one is also the 26th stellation of the triakis octahedron, one of the Catalan solids.
