Hoag's Object

Summary:Hoag's Object, a peculiar ring galaxy.
Description:This addon adds Hoag's Object, an unusual ring galaxy in Serpens Caput. It is a ring galaxy, from Earth it appears nearly face-on. It is very symmetrical for a ring galaxy, unlike other galaxies like Arp 147.

This uses a CustomTemplate (modified from a Hubble image), so in order to work, you have to put the PNG image into your "models" directory first.

Update 1.1 improves parameters from SIMBAD, and includes an improved orientation.
Update 1.2 improves the CustomTemplate to remove extraneous features.
