Kylo Ren originally would have been a Dark Jedi, called the Jedi Killer, who was more akin to Darth Vader, and would power up by directly absorbing the energy of a star.

Also, they are supposedly in a different star system to that of the republic planets that were the target of the weapon, therefore there should have been nothing for our protagonists to see at all.
The stars that form the backdrop for the end credits are exactly the same stars as in the beginning of the movie.
IMAX releases presented the five-minute sequence in which Rey and Finn escape Jakku in the Millennium Falcon (which was shot with IMAX 70mm cameras) in an opened aspect ratio compared to the rest of the film.
