Virgo Spiral (2015)

Anonymous galaxy in Virgo. Part of a search for intermediate mass black holes and attempt to discover any correlation between them and galactic bulges. See Proposal 10596.

Not the cleanest data or resulting image in the world but who else is looking?

Hubble data is public domain, but I put a lot of work into combining it into beautiful color images. The minimal credit line should read: NASA / ESA / J. Schmidt
