    Well, now explain the cloned stars in the real image.

    I voted for the left one because it looked more natural. The transparency of the cloud and the visibility of the other stars through it.

    Of course right after I voted, I thought I was probably wrong. No doubt it is the more appealing image though.

    As I understand it the right image with the real galaxy was somewhat faked with photoshop mixing to further give an illusion of not being real?

    interesting test, but a comparison to a fully true space shot image compared to a simulation would have been more interesting.

    Easy, those are not stars, they're galaxies.

    Theres no 'faking' with the right

    No lensing, the beauty of ancient galaxies is they are not pretty like most people think about when thinking of galaxies.

    Windows is superior to Mac.

    And truth be told when I first read the paper I thought the left was real too.

    Still dubious that the photo on the right wasn't doctored somehow.

    That close up looks cloned. Also the large orange "star" on the lower left is pixel identical to the one at the top left. Check it out, each of those orange cirlces have to red dots in identical positions.

    It's almost like it was stitched together from different exposures so parts got duplicated.

    They can be starships, but that doesn't answer the question.

    That makes some sense.

    Well there is plenty of faking on the right image weather or not it is the real galaxy. I Think you caught someone cheating on the their research.

    The image below shows that some of the stars or galaxies that repeat once on the left and multiple times on the right. I did lighten the mid-tones to make easy to see the cloning tracks. Notice that on each of these clones the noise doesn't match the background but it does match the originals from the bottom portion of the image.

    Somebody was definitely using some fakery to make us think that the real image was the fake image, but that is some good tricking.

    You know what I find amazing even at 35,000 feet in a jet the Earth still seems flat, a huge endless disk, no matter how I look at it its flat. And while Apollo 16 was all staged and filmed here on Earth, Apollo really happened on the moon. And I once saw this picture of Big foot that.........

    Sorry hcoat you posted while I was typing.

    The image on the right is an image from the Sloan digital survey. The one on the left is and NBody TreePM simulation which overlays the simulation over the same plate sans the central galaxy. Whats so hard to believe? Why the snipe hunt.

    Although I have to admit when I was a boy scout and was subjected to my first snipe hunt I happened to do it with a kid who was an avid bird watcher and out on the plains where much to the older kids surprise he came back with a real snipe. Nothing like busting myths which aren't myths and having fun in the process.
