*drumroll*........................ This image it NOT courtesy of NASA. Ladies and gentlemen...This "galaxy" is no galaxy at all! But a mere fractal! Rendered in Apophysis, no less! Comments, criticisms, and standing ovations all welcome.

Very cool. Looks like something you'd find on Astronomy Picture of the Day, my other favorite site.

The beer urges me on, the bewitching beer, which sets even a wise man to singing and to laughing gently and rouses him up to dance and brings forth words which were better unspoken. Homer, The Odyssey (note: beer substituted for wine)

Knowing space images very well, I must say you did an excellent job here. It looks extremely realisitic. Very well done.
