NGC 1365, 3D-transformation test

An experiment with the NGC 1365, the "Great Barred Spiral Galaxy". All the stars from our milky way are removed and the original 2D-galaxy image is the projected to a 3D-surface. The resulting 3D-model is then animated to a movie file. The purpose is to show the actual shape of the galaxy, now distorted by a perspective.

Original image and the thechnical details can be found here:
