that galaxy at the end of 'Empire Strikes Back'
what one was that? i used to wonder why exactly they put that in there at the end (beyond the fact it looks pretty) i mean you never see any other stuff like that in star wars beyond 'normal' stuff like stars, planets and asteroids. maybe its some kind of hint of where Star Wars was set a long time ago...

It does not actually exist. It was made from visual effects. Of course Lucas did base the VFX on several galaxial pictures. Also note that Empire Strikes Back was released in 1980, five years before the launch of Hubble in 1985. And if you think about it, Return of the Jedi (1983) was released two years before the launch of the Hubble.
I was in the Navy when ESB came out, thus I never saw ESB until 1991 when I mustered out. I even thought it was a Hubble picture or Hubble based until I read the book Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back: Behind the Scenes. It was then that I realized the image was done through VFX. Amazing what VFX can do, even back then, 30+ years ago.
