Cool!

I have a prototype image here:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/81471534@N00/6848489598/lightbox/ 

Maybe we should consider working from the same branch, but I'm not sure.

Hi,

Sounds a good idea to me. Worth noting that with the new NGC DSO
catalogue from Prof Wolfgang Steinicke we'll be able to filter on
galaxy surface brightness as well as magnitude (and other fields too,
if desired). Have a look in Nebula.cpp from the new NGC catalogue
branch if interested.

Thanks,
Thomas
