A couple of questions about today's apod:

I think that it might be interesting to see some of these pictures with the stars not relevant to the object blacked so that it would be easier for the novice to understand what is in front of the object, what is the object and what is behind the object. This would be in addition to the real photo of course.

Also, I wonder what the night sky would look like from a planet in one of the galaxies in the Perseus cluster. Would they see a nearby galaxy filling half the night sky?
