Some processing notes: The cores of the galaxies were saturated in the ESO image, so I airbrushed over them with an approximate color. The stars were blurred/averaged and then shrunk down with a "minimum" filter so I could get just their color without the huge halo. I did some color balancing, as well. It's not ideal. It still looks pretty good, though.
