The larger versions of the picture of this galaxy are strikingly beautiful, with individual stars being resolved everywhere.

Geck, did you help process it? I have to say I love the colors of the picture. I realize that the colors are "somewhat mapped", since the image is a two-filter one.

Nah, and as a rule, you will never see anything I have touched on ESA's website. They have their own methods, and they don't let anyone else collaborate. Here's mine: https://flic.kr/p/Qr8yjy
It is ok to enjoy it even though you know the wavelength doesn't correspond to blue. Somewhere out there in the Universe is an Ann with infrared eyes who sees hydrogen emission in blue all the time.
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.
