It is reproduced at far lower resolution than the original. The upper insert is one of the ESO VLT firstlight images and is a true colour view of the core of the globular cluster Messier 4. It was constructed from 2 minute exposures taken on 22nd May 1998 and reaches a limiting B magnitude of about 24 in 0.53 arcsec seeing. More details of the VLT first light are given in the VLT First Light paper. The lower insert is taken from the paper of Peletier and Balcells and shows multi-colour NICMOS/WFPC2 imaging of the bulges of nearby galaxies. It is used by permission of the authors.
