That's a pretty spectacular view. I've currently got this image of the galactic centre on my desktop (Chandra+Hubble+Spitzer), it works nicely with a dark theme.

That's a nice one, too! Anyhow, this is once more a great argument for multi wavelength astronomy/astrophysics.

We have discussed such an option briefly some time ago. I think this is an important feature, notably since we do have scientific data available.
