^ No, because they used the exact same FX for every type of orbit in every episode of TOS. The only thing that changed is the color of the planet.
Addition - the only things that changed are the color and rotation direction of the planet. Sometimes it went with the Enterprise's direction of travel and sometimes it did not.
I would need to see an example of that, since as far as I know this is not the case. The closest thing I've heard to this is the trick where the generic "planet" element is used with Enterprise orbiting from a front aspect, then is used at a different time--flipped horizontally--with Enterprise orbiting from a rear aspect, in which case the planet rotation appears to be the opposite direction.
