I am wondering about magnitude of these fluctuations in terms of pixel brightness within a galaxy. My guess is that these are minuscule and it is most likely that shot noise (as well as noise from the camera) normally drowns them, and one would possibly need unusually long integration to quantify these fluctuations. I am talking amateur imaging of course.
