Mm. I actually tried to populate the Fornax Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy like the other galaxies. However, the galaxy is ellipsoidal, which makes calculating the distance more of a hassle. I'm putting that on hold for right now and might try other galaxies like Leo A...

If you can do this until the middle of April, it would be great. :smile:

That project looks great. Thank you very much for your time. I hope I'll give it a try very soon. :smile:
By the way, I noticed that you've placed real stars in various galaxies, which is very neat. I remember I had made an addon that adds fictional stars in Ursa Minor Dwarf Galaxy. I just wonder if this galaxy is in your to-do list. If yes, you can use my addon if you wish. Populating it with real star would be great. :biggrin:

Hello! I know about your addon for a long time. However, I do not add it because the stars are fictitious. We have no fictional objects (except Russell's Teapot :biggrin:).

I know. I just wonder if you're going to add real stars in this galaxy. By the way, are there any catalogues with actual information about real stars in this galaxy? Just curious. :think:

We ourselves can not. Hope only for LukeCEL.:smoke: And if only these stars are in the SIMBAD database.

Great work! Where can I get add-on? Or do I have to wait for your next batch of release?

I tried to add stars to the Sagittarius Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy (Sagittarius dSph) but it didn't turn out well. This galaxy is scattered, and it's not very well defined. So when I tried to plot the stars, it ended up looking like this:

Added after 58 seconds:
P. S. Art Blos, how do I add pictures in-line like you do?

Added 3K-texture for Ceres in enhanced colors

A similar question I asked a few days ago, where can I download the "added 3K-texture" files?

and why a 3000 px image ???

graphics cards work most efficiently with images that are a " power of two "

as to the image ??
i am guessing this one "PIA19977" from 2015

John, is there really a good reason to only use power-of-2 textures? I've never had any problems or performance issues with non-power-of-2 textures. Sometimes the source material is in a different size and rescaling it either negatively effects image quality or file size.
