Description

M82 the "Cigar Galaxy"- this is my second approach of processing the Hubble files. These raw files are huge (about 3GB - it's a mosaic of 24 parts) but the resolution is just amazing.

Did you notice the odd shape at the bottom? Looks like an alien space station😵I saw this on some other Hubble images too. In the M16 image it's in the upper left corner. I wonder what that could be?
