Bernard, that is a truly impressive image. There is a lot to look at in this
picture, and the more you look the more there is. The nebulosity is more
defined than it appears at first, and the dust clouds in the foreground add a
lot of contrast and sharp details. Interesting that there are diffraction
spikes on only the larger stars with the others being well defined circles or
small pinpoints. I personally find that aspect ratio (3:2?) more pleasing than
more square pictures. APOD worthy - go for it!
You have been processing a lot of images lately from your new vantage point in
NSW. Clearly that has taken you a lot of time. Did you quit your job? 😊
