Pan: The forest for the trees, the galaxy for the stars

An irregular galaxy: a cloud of tiny, point-like stars on a dark background. The cloud is densest along a broad, curved band across the centre of the image, coloured a faint blue with glowing purplish patches, and the stars grow more dense out to the edges but don’t fully vanish. A few distant background galaxies appear among the stars as glowing spots.
