I am using the latest one from InterfaceLift:

https://interfacelift.com/wallpaper/details/4018/the_galactic_center.html

This composite image combines a near-infrared view from the Hubble Space Telescope, an infrared view from the Spitzer Space Telescope, and an X-ray view from the Chandra X-ray Observatory into one multi-wavelength picture.

It features the spectacle of stellar evolution: from vibrant regions of star birth, to young hot stars, to old cool stars, to seething remnants of stellar death called black holes. This activity occurs against a fiery backdrop in the crowded, hostile environment of the galaxy's core, the center of which is dominated by a supermassive black hole nearly four million times more massive than our Sun. Permeating the region is a diffuse blue haze of X-ray light from gas that has been heated to millions of degrees by outflows from the supermassive black hole as well as by winds from massive stars and by stellar explosions. Infrared light reveals more than a hundred thousand stars along with glowing dust clouds that create complex structures including compact globules, long filaments, and finger-like "pillars of creation," where newborn stars are just beginning to break out of their dark, dusty cocoons.

Building Niqu for El Capitan... or similar because there are many restrictions on using black buttons with white glyphs I found out - that project is now gone and this is what is left. I'm trying my best though. Screenshot.jpg

Any place but here or there....
This image awakened my fascination with Guan Yu a few years back. The artist did several more renderings of GY and his Three Kingdoms cohorts for a game system, but I just love this one, especially the brush strokes beard.
