By the way - I hope that I can try imaging the Draco Triplet you mentioned earlier, but it will have to wait for next year, maybe around April. Before that, our house is in the way - no unobstructed view in northern direction.


Well, Mother Nature can never be pushed aside ;-)
So I have some further time for fine-tuning the Draco Triplet display until April ...

Since my two collaborators are currently again in "pause" mode for professional reasons, I returned to galaxy rendering and texture aspects in the meantime.

E.g. I experimented with inserting another galactic "dust layer"(with a gradient) into the galaxy templates for the various Hubble types. This renders things a little more "washed out" like in the real Universe ...

Example of a Sb-type galaxy (NGC 6978):

Let's wait and see...
