could you elaborate on 'center of the widest peak'? It is always helpful to know what you have already tried as well.

The definition of a "peak" is not so straightforward, especially when you have noise. Does that little noise peak on the shoulder of a bigger peak mean that that hump is now actually two peaks instead of one big one with a little bit of noise?
Do you have the Signal Processing Toolbox? If so play around with findpeaks(). Or else search the File Exchange - there are several peak detectors in there I believe.
Feel free to post your image or a screenshot of your histogram if you think that would help us help you. You can post here
