About this image

An experiment with Starnet++.  Whilst the original looked good the stars within our own galaxy do mask details on Andromeda so I tried this tool and it worked pretty well.  I had to add the core of M32 back in using photoshop after the core of that galaxy was removed by the tool.  I guess though this is as close a view as we are likely to get of what it would look like if imaging from intergalactic space.
