sdss_dr13_galaxies.zip (v0.9; 30MB expands to 37MB, 06Jun17)
is now available. This Addon includes a menu which allows you to view up to 2,204,870 galaxy positions. These positions were taken from the SDSS DR13 data release.

Also, see https://www.classe.cornell.edu/~seb/celestia/catalogs.html#3.5.12

The image above shows only 196,746 galaxies, less than 10% of the total. 11 CMOD models are used instead of detailed DSC catalogs, so performance is reasonably good.

Thanks for sharing, very good add-on!

If Celestia will have a new release this should be a part of it!

Also grids should be part of a new release too in my opinion.
