Here is the long clickable index of scientific papers about different aspects of global clusters that I used in my extensive implementation of globulars in celestia.Sci.

Tx, won't do such exercise myself but at least I have now an idea about the method used!

Hmmm... would be nice to include in Celestia.Sci's documentation some links to the papers used to write the code... (or to propose the papers themselves via a downloadable archive)

Oh, such a precise documentation is a crucial new scientific aspect of celestia.Sci! The relevant papers used for the simulation can be clicked from within celestia.Sci and much more... But this exists only in alpha stage so far.

Also I have partly finished a Blog with detailed explanations about the various astrophysical input concepts.

Another important new feature is a sexy overlay plotting of data base content within celestia.Sci along with various statistical tools.

:shock:
Sound fabulous... That makes me think it would be nice, once the soft achieve a descent release stage, to do a mailing list to all the people from these papers presenting the soft...

Good idea, notably since I am in close email communication anyway with a substantial number of researchers whose papers I used.

Recently the European Southern Observatory (ESO) set out a competition for
promoting the winning celestial object from their huge database.

One of the two displayed natural color versions of the beautiful globular cluster NGC 288 is among the winner pictures, while the other one is a standard rendering with celestia.Sci.

Would you be able to find out which is which?? ;-)

The high amount of similarity is a testimony for the sophisticated underlying theoretical (+ statistical) approach in the computer simulated image.

Enjoy,

Yours even has some strings of stars, that I always see in GC, and some friends insist they are illusory...

I would have to say image 2 is the real
but the two are very close

You are of course both correct ;-) .

Here is an interesting celestia.Sci screenshot of the yellowish galactic globular cluster Ton 2 that may be less well known. The image nicely illustrates the huge range spanned by my shader stars within one image, from the faintest ones (~ 25 m) in Ton 2 to the fairly bright (4.25 m) G8III star in the lower left vicinity of the globular:
