Two stars must be placed in every row and column. No two stars may touch, even diagonally.
Additionally, it must be possible to place some digits in cells without stars that signify the number of adjacent stars (diagonally adjacent cells count) and digits do not repeat in a row or column. Also, clues outside a row or column indicate the sum of the digits between the stars.
Cells with a circle must have a digit in them.
Determining where every digits goes is not part of the puzzle; it merely must be possible to place them. (In other words, the placement of the digits is not necessarily unique; only the placement of the stars must be.)
