Mike, I always like to include the uncropped image. You can spend hours looking for galaxies. I often thought it would be a neat contest to give people a full resolution image like this and see who could identify the most galaxies.

Man, I got lost roaming around the uncropped version stumbling over one ultra distant galaxy cluster after another. Galaxies out number individual stars by at least a 3 to 1 ratio in the uncropped. I love images like this one.....awesome shot. * ** *Mike* -- See message header for info on list archives or unsubscribing, and please send personal replies to the author, not the list. -- See message header for info on list archives or unsubscribing, and please send personal replies to the author, not the list.
