Hi everyone (and developers). I was wondering if Celestia could render elliptical galaxies more realistically than it does now. Currently, they are drawn similarly to irregular galaxies. But they look more like this:

They have a more white to golden color, and have a very smooth brightness profile that is accurately described using de Vaucouleurs' law. Any thoughts?
