NGC 1365

A view of the central portion of The Great Barred Spiral Galaxy from Hubble. This was captured as part of a joint survey with ALMA to study many aspects of young star clusters to better understand star formation. This survey is great for producing high quality images of galaxies because it includes five filters: one near-infrared, one visible green, one visible blue, and two near-ultraviolet. It's possible to create an image with some stunning colors with this extended spectrum, and you don't even have to fiddle with the saturation.
